Gas line rupture claims a life in Kentucky
A fire caused by a gas line rupture early this morning in Kentucky killed one person and injured at least others, according to news reports. The fire damaged a half dozen mobile homes as well as train tracks. About 75 people were evacuated from the mobile home park.
Don Gilliam, director of Lincoln County Emergency Management, said the 30” gas line breached shortly before two a.m in Hustonville, which is south of Lexington.
Witnesses described seeing a fireball in the air and hearing a loud sound, like a bomb.
The cause of the incident is under investigation.
