NiSource Pipeline Fire Closes West Virginia Freeway

Natural gas escaping from a pipeline owned by NiSource Inc. caused a fire that closed an interstate freeway and burned houses near Sissonville, West Virginia.

The fire was reported about 1 p.m. local time near the Lanham Compressor Station on the Columbia Gas Transmission system, about 15 miles (24 kilometers) north of Charleston, Anna Kaplan, a spokeswoman for NiSource, wrote in an e-mail today.

Flames reached three houses and forced local officials to divert drivers from Interstate 77, said Dale Petry, Kanawha County emergency management director.

NiSource is based in Merrillville, Indiana.

“The flames were shooting across the interstate to where they couldn’t even see,” Petry said in a telephone interview.

The fire has been contained and no customers were affected, NiSource’s Kaplan wrote.
