Flash Fire at Compressor Station in Pennsylvania
5/15/2013 (Updated 6:54:20 PM)They aren't calling it an explosion but company officials and the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection are still investigating a flash fire that occurred on Turnpike Road in Brooklyn Township Pennsylvania.
Shortly after 11:00 o'clock last night the station experienced an emergency shutdown down. None of the eleven workers on site were inside the building at the time of the fire.
All of the workers were able to evacuate without injury.
"Thankfully there were no injuries at the time of the incident and there was no third party damage. The facility and all the safety systems worked exactly as planned to minimize the incident," said Chris Staffel, Public Outreach for Williams.
The Williams Station will remain closed while the investigation of the cause continues.
