The crater in the road stretches more than 30 feet long.

Wednesday night the fireball from this explosion could be seen rising more than 150 feet the air.

People could see it from multiple places in the metro.

Logan County, Canadian County, and Kingfisher County Sheriffs Offices all responded with Piedmont Fire, Cashion Fire, and Oakcliff Fire.

Fortunately, while it was quite the spectacle to see, no one was hurt.

DCP Midstream owns the pipeline that blew. 

Investigators will be working to see what caused it, right now the cause is still in question.
