Columbia Gas says a natural gas pipeline of theirs exploded in Knifley around 1 a.m. Thursday morning.

The explosion burned three homes, destroying two.

Two people went to the hospital with minor injuries, and were released.

A spokesperson for Columbia Gas says it could take months to figure out why this happened.

People say they saw flames miles and even counties away.

Adair County entered a state of emergency and they shut down Highway 76 going into Knifley until about 1 PM.

20 homes evacuated because of the fire.

Four people lost their homes. Columbia Gas says it will do what's right, and take care of their needs.
