Terry Monnolly, president of DiGioia, said many people, including insurance company agents, spent the past week at the site asking questions.
said, "There's no fingerpointing.People are just trying to get to the truth of it." DiGioia
lost four construction vehicles to fire, including two tractor backhoes, plus a pickup truck.
The water leak occurred when a DiGioia
worker removed by hand a metal box that covered a water valve about 8 feet below ground.
"We as a company took every precaution we could," Monnolly
said."We had the water department out there that morning before we started work to man the valves . . . They had trouble shutting it down."
The water leaked for about three hours.
Workers with the Water Department apparently went about turning off valves connected to 12-inch-wide water lines instead of turning off valves connected to the 24-inch line.
