A natural gas explosion last night has taken the life of one woman.
Officals say the explosion at the Texas Eastern pipeline terminal happened around 11p.m. Sunday night. The woman, Kollett Meyer of Waynesville, was employed by the company.
Firefighters from Monroe and Middletown arrived on the scene to fight the fire and witnesses say flames shot 300 feet into the air. At 12:15 a.m. another explosion occured.
Officals say the fire may have been caused by a faulty valve. Crews shut off the flow of gas to the pipeline and officals are waiting for the fire to burn itself out.
Two other people were at the plant but were not injured.
