WHARTON COUNTY, Texas – A 24-inch gas line fire is burning at the Enterprise Pipeline facility west of East Bernard.

It happened just after noon Thursday shutting down part of FM 1164 and prompting the evacuation of one home nearby.

One person was hurt and taken to the hospital, but is expected to be OK.

The gas line was shut off so the fire can burn itself out.

The cause of the explosion is still being investigated.
