WINFIELD, W.Va. (AP) - At least one person was injured in West Virginia after a gas line exploded near Winfield.

The explosion occurred Monday afternoon.

West Virginia Department of Military Affairs and Public Safety spokesman Lawrence Messina says initial reports indicate the explosion may have been caused when a piece of equipment started up near a 4-inch gas line that was leaking. Messina says no homes in the area were affected.

Messina says initial reports say one man was taken to a hospital’s burn unit.
