Gas explosion rocks western Pennsylvania community
CENTER, Pa. (AP) - Authorities say a gas explosion in western Pennsylvania has spurred evacuations, but no injuries have been reported.
Beaver County officials told news outlets a gas line caused the blast, which was reported shortly before 5 a.m. Monday in Center. Witnesses reported hearing a loud boom and an orange glow filling the sky.
Homes near the site were being evacuated as a precaution, and the Central Valley school district canceled all classes for Monday due to the blast. At least one lane of Interstate 376 eastbound was also closed in the area as a precaution.
