Canadian, TX - One man is injured in a fiery explosion near a natural gas pipeline in Hemphill County.
The accident happened Friday morning about 11 miles east of Canadian.
The Hemphill County Sheriff's Office says a presser construction crew was working on a pipeline that had been shut off.
Some residual gas apparently got sucked into the running engine of a track hoe, which ignited.
The track hoe operator suffered minor injuries and was treated and released from a hospital.
Firefighters monitored the blaze, which burned itself out.
This comes a little more than a month after another explosion in Hemphill County.
