1 injured, 1 missing at gas well fire



DILLINER, Green County — One worker has been injured and another is missing after a natural gas well explosion and fire in southwestern Pennsylvania, within miles of the West Virginia border.
Chevron spokesman Trip Oliver says the fire was reported about 6:45 a.m. today at the Lanco 7H well in Dunkard Township, near Bobtown. That’s about 50 miles south of Pittsburgh.
Oliver says one person is reported hospitalized and another is unaccounted for.
Oliver says Chevron personnel immediately responded to the fire and called in assistance from Wild Well Control.
Ambulance and emergency medical crews have been summoned to the scene, and state police have reportedly set up a half-mile perimeter.
Crews at the scene report that intense flames have kept them from getting too close to the well.
