According to Noble County Emergency Management Agency Director Chasity Schmelzenbach, the resulting fire was contained as of 4:30 a.m.

“There was an explosion and a fire, but no injuries were reported and no evacuations were necessary,” said Schmelzenbach. “There are multiple lines in the same footprint, but the companies with lines in that area have shut-in their wells and the fire is considered contained.”

What causes this? It surely was not “Cutting the Grass” this time as the last one. Doubt at 2 AM, anyone was working on it. Are these Time Bombs?

Prayers up.
