Gas Leak Sparks Fires, Explosion at Church

American Energy Coalition - August 10th, 2009

Firefighters say a natural gas leak sparked a fire outside a church in Timnath, Colo. and an explosion that caused another fire inside the church, according to an Associated Press account. Firefighters say a contractor working on street construction hit a natural gas line around 8:45 a.m. Saturday, and leaking gas sparked a fire outside Timnath Presbyterian Church. Leaking gas apparently found another ignition source inside, sparking the explosion and second fire before emergency crews arrived.
