Our assessment of the damage to the Lathrop compressor station near Springville in Susquehanna County, Pa., following a flash fire yesterday is ongoing.

Preliminary visual assessment shows that the structure sustained the brunt of the damage, while equipment and flooring inside the structure remain in place.

All employees and contractors at the facility are accounted for and there were no injuries. Emergency shutdown equipment worked properly to isolate and minimize the incident, and emergency procedures were immediately activated.

The cause of the fire is unknown and is under investigation.
