A Columbia Gulf Transmission natural gas pipeline in the Knifley community in Adair County erupted into a ball of flame shortly after 1 a.m. CDT today. Three homes, two barns and four vehicles were destroyed, Greg Thomas, Adair County Emergency Management director, told Bowling Green's WBKO-TV.
Witnesses said the explosion and fire could been seen as far away as Russell Springs and the shock was felt for miles, the station said on its website.
One person was injured and hospitalized, WBKO reported.
