  • Lincoln County Gas Pipe Explosion: 1 Dead, 5 Injured

At least five others were injured, according to Dan Gilliam, the director of Lincoln County Emergency Management, and at least six structures were damaged.

People in the surrounding area were moved away from the scene as the fire spread to a nearby trailer park.

"The next phase of this effort will be to identify folks that are missing or are unaccounted for", he said. Firefighters were still working to douse the flames hours later, with trucks repeatedly refilling their tanks and returning to the scene.

Officials said a ruptured gas line was the cause of the blast.

Gilliam said the initial blast could be seen several counties away as the flames reached heights of more than 300 feet.

Trooper Robert Purdy tweeted Thursday that the deputy responded to the area near where the explosion happened to rescue a couple outside their home in the Moreland community.

"At this point, I think there is five to seven persons that we don't actually know their whereabouts".

A gas explosion in the Moreland-area of Lincoln County lit-up the night sky overnight and shook parts of the county, according to the sheriff's office. The WKYT meteorologist said the fire showed up on radar, according to the station.

The blast, in Moreland, a community about 65 kilometres south of Lexington, was the second so far this year on Canadian energy company Enbridge Inc.'s Texas Eastern natural gas pipeline after an incident in OH in January that injured at least two people.

Emergency managers said the rupture involved the Texas Eastern Transmission pipeline, which is owned and operated by Enbridge.
