Explosion Possibly Caused By Gas Leak

Officials in Rusk county say a leak in a natural gas pipe may have contributed to Saturday's early morning explosion.  The massive fireballs shot into the sky after a Kinder-Morgan 20 inch gas line ruptured around 12:00 a.m. on County Road 426 just west of Henderson.  Five nearby homes had to be evacuated.  No one was injured in the blast.  Kinder-Morgan is now taking sections of the pipe to be analyzed, in hopes to determine exactly what caused the rupture.
