First responders were on the scene of a pipeline explosion and fire in Noble County early Wednesday morning.

Officials say the incident happened around 2:30 a.m. about 3 miles north of Summerfield along State Route 513.

The pipeline has been identified as Seneca Lateral and operated by Tallgrass Energy, although officials say there are multiple pipelines in the same footprint and several facilities in the area.

The explosion awoke a number of local residents, many of whom say the night sky was lit up like daytime.
