We may never know what caused an explosion that destroyed a dehydration facility at the Huntingburg gas storage field on Monday night.
Officials said the building was completely engulfed in flames when the Holland Volunteer Fire Department arrived. Huntingburg utility crews arrived on the scene and shut off the lines feeding the facility, which reduced the flames and allowed firefighters to control the blaze.
Officials said no one was injured in the explosion.
Gas service to Huntingburg gas customers was not affected, but local customers near the facility were without service for a short time.
Officials told us the gas storage field had been capped and is secure.
The facility will not be rebuilt, and the land will be restored for farming once the debris is removed.
