The call came in at 8:00 p.m., 911 officials said.

Fire departments from Reyonldsville, Lumberport and Mt. Clare responded to the scene, along with Dominion workers.

It was a six inch, low pressure gathering line, according to Dominion.  Workers were able to shut valves off on either side of the fire, allowing it to burn its self out, Dominion officials said.  The fire was contained to the pipeline’s right of way and was out by early Friday morning, officials said.
