No Injuries Reported In Oklahoma Pipeline Explosion

Another day, another pipeline explosion.


A family of three living in a home about 200 yards away from the blast escaped unharmed.

A natural gas pipleine explosion in northwestern Oklahoma sparked a massive fire on Monday night, CBS News reported.

According to News9, firefighters from Oklahoma and Kansas were called to the scene near the town of Rosston. Residents within two miles of the blast were ordered to evacuate. Highway 284 was shut down as a precaution.

Engineers were called in to cut off the natural gas flow to the pipeline, which is owned by Northern Natural Gas of Omaha, and brings gas from Texas to the Upper Midwest.

No injuries or deaths have been reported, the Harper County Sheriff's Office said.
