NEW MARTINSVILLE -

A small fire was reported at a gas well pad in Wetzel County on Saturday night.

According to the New Martinsville Fire Department, the fire broke out shortly after 6:30 p.m. in a flare tube that had blown apart at the Lemons Pad off of American Ridge Road.

Fire crews used water to keep the equipment cool and spent about two hours on the scene.

Representatives from Stone Energy were on scene and the fire department consulted with them about the small fire in the flare stack. Stone Energy is investigating the cause of the fire.

The fire department said there were no hazardous materials that spilled, but a small area around the pad did burn.

Units from Paden City, Grandview and Silver Hill responded.
