Wyoming Compressor Station Explodes
The Falcon natural gas compressor station south of Pinedale burns and then explodes into a column of flame midday Dec. 6. Nobody was directly injured in the fire and explosion, which was triggered by venting natural gas at the station, which is part of a system to collect natural gas from the Jonah and Pinedale Anticline fields. The fire was allowed to burn out, under the watchful eyes of area firefighters.
