Darrouzett, Texas - Big developments in the Darrouzett explosion investigation today.

DCP Midstream says the third-party contractors who hit their pipeline while digging never cleared their work with the state, so DCP never even knew they were there.

If they had known, they would have marked the gas line, most likely preventing the explosion.

The attorney representing the third party company, Nick Thomas Incorporated, says they are conducting their own investigation.
