UPDATE: Major Explosion in Youngsville

All is clear in Youngsville after an early morning explosion.

Fire fighters say a gas compressor ignited around 1:00 this morning blowing the roof off a Texas Gas warehouse on Verot School Road.

Fire fighters say the compressor keeps pressure on the gas line keeping the fuel flowing. Neighbors say the explosion created a fireball that could be seen and heard for miles and even set surrounding yards on fire.

Local authorities contained the flames and have since left the scene. No one was injured as a result of the blast and the gas company, Texas Gas, is investigating the cause.

They expect to release a statement later today.
