A massive gas explosion in rocked the South Texas town of Refugio, with communities as far as 60 miles away feeling the shakes from the blast.

Flames could be seen more than 100 miles away, KHOU reports.

State Troopers say so far there are no reports of injuries or serious damage. The fire is now under control.

It was about midnight when troopers received the first reports of a large explosion between Corpus Christi and Victoria, about 160 miles southwest of the Houston area.

Troopers say the explosion occurred along a natural gas pipeline owned by Kinder-Morgan about a quarter-mile off 427 FM Rd 774.

The heat from the explosion could be felt up to a 1/4-mile away.

The flames from the explosion were said to be shooting more than 200 feet into the air and could be seen from miles around.

No evacuations were called for as the company came out and shut off the flow of gas. It’s not yet confirmed which company owns the pipeline, however.

Witnesses many miles away said it looked like a volcano was erupting.

The Railroad Commission of Texas released the following statement Wednesday morning:

“Protection of public safety and our natural resources is the Railroad Commission’s highest priority, and we have an inspector en route to the incident. According to preliminary reports, the 36-inch natural gas transmission pipeline had a release around 12:37 a.m. this morning, near Refugio about 2 miles south of Farm to Market Road 239.  No injuries or fatalities have occurred, and the line has been shut in by its operator Kinder Morgan. The Commission will investigate the incident to determine compliance with pipeline safety state and federal rules. No cause of the incident has been determined at this time.”

God Bless.
