DURANGO, Colo.—No injuries are reported following an explosion that damaged two cooling towers and a trailer that housed an office at a natural gas field plant southeast of Durango. The cause of the explosion at the Williams Production Company plant is under investigation.
Durango Fire & Rescue Authority spokesman Dave Abercrombie says the explosion was reported at about 3:30 a.m.
A fire resulting from the blast burned two private vehicles.
Calls were made to 33 telephones to evacuate people within a half mile of the plant.
Williams spokesman Jeff Pounds says the seven employees who were at the facility at the time are safe, and no natural gas supplies burned.
Pounds says it's unclear when the plant might reopen.
A Williams spokeswoman says there was no immediate estimate of damage.
