SEEKONK - Local and state officials are questioning the response of Columbia Gas Co. to a fire that severely damaged the Old Grist Mill Tavern on Fall River Avenue, barely a month after the company admitted mistakes in shutting off a gas line to a Maple Street factory building.

A tractor-trailer truck overturned and slid into the restaurant, breaking a gas line and setting fire to the building early Sunday morning. It took almost two hours to shut off gas to the building, whose history dates back to the mid-1700s.
