Gas Pipeline Explosion in Mexico

A Petroleos Mexicanos oil pipeline exploded Friday morning following a gas leak.

According to local media, the explosion occurred during maintenance work, when a Pemex excavator punctured the pipeline, and it caused an explosion and fire in the gas pipeline in Amozoc, Puebla.

As a precautionary measure, firefighters evacuated the surrounding area to put out the fire.

Authorities said no deaths or injuries were reported, but three houses were damaged.
