Investigation begins into Ohio pipeline explosion

SUMMERFIELD — The natural gas pipeline that exploded Monday in rural Noble County was part of the Texas Eastern Transmission system built in the early 1950s.

Enbridge Inc., the Canadian energy company that owns Texas Eastern Transmission, released a statement saying an internal inspection of the pipeline was performed in 2012 and “no remediation was needed.”

The explosion and resulting fire injured one person, destroyed three homes and caused damage to three additional homes and the surrounding terrain, including Smithberger Road.
