Williams LNG plant fire burns out

The fire following yesterday's blast at a Williams Cos. (WMB, WPZ) liquefied natural gas plant in southeast Washington state has burned itself out, and some of the hundreds of people who were evacuated from the area are returning home.

The company says initial reports incorrectly stated that the explosion was triggered by a natural gas pipeline rupture.; the blast's cause remains unclear, but it appears to have started within the LNG storage facility at the plant.

The plant has been inspected 10 times since 2002 and has enjoyed a relatively clean record.
