The Greenwood neighborhood was rocked this morning by a natural gas explosion on Greenwood Avenue between 84th and 85th Ave.

I am greatly saddened at the destruction of three neighborhood small businesses, but believe deeply in the resiliency of our community.

Here’s a brief letter from the state Utilities and Transportation Commission, the agency leading the investigation on the cause of the explosion.
