Natural-gas pipeline blast injures 2, damages several homes

Associated Press


Authorities say a natural-gas pipeline explosion has injured two people and destroyed or damaged six homes in Ohio.

The county emergency management agency says one person was taken to a medical facility to be treated for minor burns Monday after the explosion in Summerfield in eastern Ohio.

The 30-inch diameter pipeline is part of the Texas Eastern Transmission system owned by Enbridge, a Canadian company that recently completed the 36-inch diameter NEXUS pipeline to transport gas from Appalachian shale fields across Ohio into Michigan.
