PARSHALL, N.D. (AP) - No one was hurt in a natural gas pipeline fire on the Fort Berthold Indian Reservation, and state officials say there are no worries about harm to the environment.

EOG Resources spokeswoman K. Leonard says a company pipeline had a gas leak and fire about 3 miles west of Parshall on Monday night. Workers used valves to shut off the gas supply and extinguish the blaze.

Mountrail County Emergency Manager Don Longmuir says some equipment was damaged, including a fresh water tank that leaked. State Mineral Resources Department spokeswoman Alison Ritter says there are no environmental concerns.
