Longview Oil House Demolition

A Longview home flooded with oil back in February will be destroyed, and its owner may sue for damages. Oil spewed out from Liela LeTourneau's bathroom, as authorities say a sewer line was mistakenly hooked into a saltwater disposal line.

The story gained national attention and Liela hasn't lived in the home since. Her homeowner's insurance paid the limit on her policy, but the damages are considerably more. As a result, the home must be demolished. Liela is considering a lawsuit for damages. She doesn't plan on suing the city, but against another party connected with the case.
