"Bushland Pipeline Explosion" and "Gas company releasing gas in southwest S.F. while replacing pipeline"

After by chance reading the two following articles in a row, found it ironic enough to post:

From Channel 10 News, KFDA:

"A major pipeline explosion happened just after 1:00 Thursday morning about one mile west of Bushland High School.

Residents in the area have been evacuated. We know that at least three structures are involved. Several fire crews are currently on the scene battling the fire. We have unconfirmed reports that there are only a few minor injuries." More>>>>

Santa Fe New Mexican:

"New Mexico Gas Co. workers made a scheduled release of natural gas on the southwest side of Santa Fe early Wednesday morning as part of the earthwork under way for a new Walmart Supercenter.

An additional release from a gas pipeline near the southwest end of Cerrillos Road will take place this afternoon, said NM Gas.Co spokeswoman Monica Hussey.

"We are replacing a 12-inch line," she said, adding that the time of the second release was not available.

Santa Fe County Fire Department Battalion Chief Mike Neely said four units, two fire engines and two medical emergency teams, responded early Wednesday morning after the department received calls about the odor of gas in the area of Interstate 25 down to the intersection with N.M. 599." Link>>>>
