Pipeline that burst in Oklahoma back in service


ROSSTON, Okla. (AP) _ Crews have repaired a northwest Oklahoma pipeline that burst earlier this month, shooting flames into the sky that were visible for miles.

No one was hurt in the Oct. 8 explosion in a rural area of Harper County near the Kansas border. The pipeline is owned by Northern Natural Gas Company of Omaha, Neb. 

A company spokesman said that the pipeline is repaired and back in service. Customers who had been without natural gas for two weeks had their service restored Wednesday.

The cause of the explosion remains under investigation. The company is sending a section of the pipeline to a lab for analysis, which may take a few weeks.
