Description

This seven-month-long investigation revealed serious safety concerns surrounding flexible gas lines used in millions of American homes. Beginning with a deadly attic fire that local fire officials blamed on those gas lines, our series examined the safety history of the product, known as Corrugated Stainless Steel Tubing or CSST. These in-depth reports showed that even new manufacturer recommended safety measures may not prevent some fires caused by tiny gas leaks that can develop in CSST when lightning strikes near a home.
