WARREN, MINNESOTA (KFGO-AM) -- Scary moments in northwestern Minnesota's Marshall county when an underground natural gas line ruptured and caught fire. It happened around 6:30 a.m. Monday, a couple miles northwest of Warren.
Marshall County Emergency Manager Josh Johnston says when he left his house six miles away he could see the fire and could hear the rumble. He said the escaping gas sounded like a freight train.
Johnston says about a dozen residents living in homes in a two mile radius were evacauted. Most were allowed to return within a couple of hours.
It's not known what caused the rupture.
The gas line is owned by Viking Gas Transmission Company.
