Federal Officials Continue to Investigate Lincoln Co. Pipeline Blast

Federal officials are in Kentucky investigating a natural gas pipeline explosion that killed one woman and hospitalized five others and have asked anyone with video of the blast to contact the agency.

The National Transportation Safety Board investigator in charge, Mike Hiller, talked to reporters Friday and said the investigation process can take 12 to 18 months.

The pipeline in Lincoln County was installed in 1957 and runs from Ohio to Mississippi, moving more than 1.8 million cubic feet per day.
