Milford Fire Chief Mark Jackson said this morning it’s not clear when residents of the city of Milford will be able to return to their homes after a pipeline explosion prompted an evacuation of the town’s 700-plus residents.

Jackson said Chevron crews are busy putting stops on the 14-inch pipeline that ran adjacent to the line that exploded Thursday, and after the stops are installed that line would be drained.
