VIDEO: Gasline Rupture Creates Large Fire Plume

First responders were at the scene of an incident in rural Ellsworth County where a gas line has ruptured and ignited, creating a large plume of fire Thursday afternoon.

A first responder at the scene told KSAL News he estimated the plume to be shooting at least 500 feet into the air and he could feel the heat from the fire from a mile away.

The incident happened in a rural area of Ellsworth County, about 4 miles south of the K156 / Interstate 70 Junction northeast of the city of Ellsworth.

There were no reports of injuries.
