Los Angeles, (KTLA)
Patricia K. Oliver, a lawyer who represents members of the Save Porter Ranch, sent a seven-page letter to L.A. City Attorney Mike Feuer asking him to ensure that Porter Ranch residents were not subjected to the same subsurface methane gas migration that accumulated and ignited in the Ross Dress-For-Less Department Store in the Fairfax District in 1985. Kirk Hawkins reports for the KTLA 5 News at 10 on Tuesday, Feb. 9, 2016.
Editorial note: A video that was embedded in this post has been removed because it incorrectly stated that methane is migrating underground in Porter Ranch. In fact, the Save Porter Ranch group is asking the Los Angeles City Attorney Mike Feuer to investigate whether such a migration is occurring.Return to articles
