Consumers Energy says it fired some employees after a gas explosion killed a 58-year-old man in suburban Detroit.
The utility won't disclose the number of employees. In a statement Friday, Consumers says people have been fired for failing to follow policies and procedures.
Daniel Malczynski of Royal Oak was killed last month. Crews replacing a gas main in his neighborhood may have damaged the line.
The company says it has resumed some projects that involve the same drilling method used in Royal Oak.
