Phillips 66 shuts section of Oklahoma panhandle (U.S.) gas pipeline after fire

(Reuters) - Phillips 66 said it has shut a section of a natural gas pipeline it operates in the Oklahoma Panhandle after fire and rupture that occurred on Tuesday morning.

The company said the fire was extinguished early Wednesday morning, while it has not yet determined the cause of the incident.

"There have been no injuries associated with the incident and no health threats to neighboring residences," it said.

According to the company statement, multiple fire and law enforcement agencies have responded, and local roads near the site have been temporarily closed.

Earlier this month, one worker was injured after a fire at Phillips 66's 285,000-barrel-per-day Bayway refinery in New Jersey.
