A fire continues to burn in Noble County, Ohio, near a Consol Energy Inc. well pad after an explosion and fire Wednesday afternoon killed a Blue Racer Midstream contractor while work was being done on a condensate line leading from the well.
The name of the electrical contract worker, a Virginia resident, was not disclosed in a statement by Noble County Sheriff Stephen S. Hannum. No one else was hurt in the 4:15 p.m. Wednesday accident, which occurred on Blue Racer Midstream property next to the well pad.
Hannum said one fire was quickly contained, but a second, which he termed "small but dangerous," continues to burn and is being monitored by emergency officials, Blue Racer employees and the Ohio Fire Marshal's office.Click here to read more.
