Gas line explosion rattles Washington Parish

FRANKLINTON | A gas line explosion has shaken residents out of their beds in a rural area of Washington Parish near the community of Enon.

Sheriff Randy Seal says there were no reports of injuries from the blowout, which occurred around 5:30 a.m. Tuesday.

Seal says the gas line is located off Lee Road and smoke is still coming from the site, but it "appears the fire is out."

He said there are people living near the gas line, but no one has been evacuated.
