Colonial Pipeline announced that its gasoline pipeline that caught fire and exploded last week is officially back in service as of 5:45am Sunday.
A section of Colonial Pipeline’s 5,500-mile Line 1 pipeline exploded last Monday during routine maintenance operations, killing one person and injuring several others who remain hospitalized.
According to government officials and Colonial Pipeline, a piece of excavation equipment hit the pipeline, which caused the explosion. Investigations are still ongoing.
Colonial Pipeline reported that although the line has been restarted, it may take several days for fuel delivery to return to normal after the service restoration.
