Authorities are investigating a fire at a natural gas processing plant near the West Virginia-Ohio border.
Dominion Transmission says the fire occurred around 1:30 a.m. Saturday at its Natrium Processing and Fractionation Facility along the Ohio River that went into service this summer.
The fire was confined to a small area of the plant and was allowed to burn itself out. No one was injured.
Route 2 in West Virginia near the plant was closed for about 8 hours. About 25 people from 11 homes were evacuated for about 90 minutes early Saturday.
Dominion is working to determine the cause of the fire and assessing the damage at the plant.
The plant is part of a joint venture between Richmond, Va.-based Dominion Resources and Caiman Energy II.
