RCMP investigate natural gas line blast west of Edmonton, no injuries

STONY PLAIN, Alta. — RCMP are investigating an explosion and fire caused by an apparent natural gas line breach just west of Edmonton.

Police said no one was hurt by the blast in Stony Plain, which the fire department says appears to have been triggered when a construction crew hit a gas line.

About 300 homes were forced to go without gas for the day, but service was restored by late Thursday evening.

Fire officials said weather conditions helped crews minimize damage.

“The wind was definitely in our favour, keeping the fire going to the east and away from homes,” deputy Fire Chief Bert Lubbers said.
