According to the Associated Press, there’s been another “natural gas” explosion in the West Virginia:

Investigators are trying to determine what caused an explosion and fire at a producing gas well in West Virginia’s Northern Panhandle.

No one was hurt in the accident Sunday at a Chesapeake Appalachia LLC site in rural Marshall County, but it sparked a fire that may need 48 hours to burn out. The well is about nine miles from Cameron.

The fire is the second at a natural gas operation in Marshall County in recent months. Seven workers were injured June 7 in a blast near Moundsville.

Maybe West Virginia would be better off developing its utility-scale wind power potential?
