Fire and Explosion At Wyoming Gas Field Facility

PINEDALE, Wyo. (AP) — A fire and explosion has occurred at a compressor facility in the Jonah natural gas field in western Wyoming.

Stephen Smith of the Sublette County Sheriff’s Office says the fire was first reported at 12:07 p.m. Tuesday, followed shortly after by reports of an explosion and flames 100 feet high.

Smith says all 35 workers in the area are accounted for and there were no fatalities. He says two people were taken to a local clinic with pre-existing medical conditions exacerbated by the fire.

The flow of natural gas was shut off and the fire was being allowed to burn itself out.

Firefighters from Sublette County, Pinedale, Big Piney, Boulder and Sweetwater County responded
