PORT ARTHUR, Texas--Shattered glass, melted bumpers and a destroyed building is all that’s left after a Chevron pipeline exploded over the weekend.

Investigators believe lightning struck the above-ground control valve to the pipeline. Residents within a three and a half mile radius had to be evacuated but no one was hurt.
