Utility halts some projects statewide after blast story image
ROYAL OAK, Mich. (AP) - A utility says it has halted projects throughout Michigan that involve the same drilling method used before a suburban Detroit house explosion that killed a 58-year-old man.
   
Consumers Energy said in a statement Thursday that employees and contractors are conducting a detailed review of procedures on projects involving boring. Upon completion of the review, the utility says it will resume those drilling operations.
   
The subsidiary of Jackson-based CMS Energy Corp. has said that natural gas leaking from a line serving the home in Royal Oak may have caused the Feb. 27 blast. Consumers Energy crews had been working for several days to replace a gas main on the street and may have damaged the line.
   
Daniel Malczynski died in the blast, which leveled his house and damaged several others.
