- A TransCanada (TRP) natural-gas pipeline has exploded and caught fire in a rural area in the province of Manitoba in western Canadian.
- TransCanada has closed the pipe down, leaving around 4,000 customers without gas.
- While there were no injuries, the incident comes at a sensitive time, with the U.S. still deciding whether to approve TransCanada's Keystone XL pipeline and the company looking to build other similar infrastructure for oil and gas.
- The safety of transporting energy has come under increasing scrutiny lately, particularly following a series of rail and pipeline accidents.
