LANSING (WKZO) -- Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette says there's an agreement with Consumers Energy to establish a fund aiding victims of disasters like the explosion in Royal Oak that killed one man.
The blast left more than two dozen homes damaged and some of those dwellings will have to be torn down. The explosion occurred while crews were replacing gas lines on Cooper Street near Woodward Avenue.
The one-million dollar fund is separate from any fines or penalties that Consumers may receive from the Michigan Public Service Commission. The agency is still continuing to investigate the incident that occurred on February 27th.
