Montclair-based American Tank Service, which was removing an underground oil tank in Bergenfield last week when a gas line was pinched, causing a gas explosion that killed three, has been named in a lawsuit by a survivor. The AP reports:

Kathleen Moat, 39, claims workers from American Tank Service of Montclair were negligent when they dug on Dec. 13 to remove an underground oil tank outside the complex. She also is suing a natural gas company, claiming workers from Public Service Electric & Gas Co. didn’t properly mark areas where pipelines were buried.

  1. ATS– they are the folks who inspected the property for an underground oil tank before we bought our house last spring. Maybe I should get a second opinion?
    Merry Christmas, and enjoy the Cloverleaf; it’s one of my favorite joints in Jersey.
