A 30-inch natural gas pipeline has ruptured in a rural area in western Missouri causing an explosion and fire that could be seen for miles, but no injuries have been reported.

Panhandle Energy, the Energy Transfer (ETE, ETP) subsidiary that operates the pipeline, rerouted the natural gas flow so that service was not interrupted; the Panhandle Eastern pipeline system includes some 6,500 miles of pipeline with a delivery capacity of 2.8B cf/day.
