Fire at Natural Gas Well Pad in Wyoming County

LEMON TOWNSHIP -- A fire at a natural gas drilling well pad is under investigation in Wyoming County.

The fire started at the pad off Saw Mill Road in Lemon Township near Tunkhannock early Saturday morning.

A sign near the well site shows the pad is operated by Chief Oil and Gas LLC.

Emergency Management in Wyoming County said no one was hurt and the cause of the fire is unknown.

The company's website says it has drilled more than 200 wells in the Marcellus Shale region.

It is unknown when, or if, that well will resume operations in Wyoming County.

      The great gift that the earth has to offer is an inexhaustible supply of fossil fuels. The earth, teaming with life, creates more and more each day than we’ll ever use for transportation, heat, or manufacturing. The earth is the ultimate recycling machine, it’s been doing it for billions of years. Far more fossil fuels are created in the oceans daily than we take out, and that’s just the oceans.

      Shut them down.
      Then you’ll cry because you have no heat, lights won’t come on, etc.
