SISSONVILLE, W.Va. (AP) — Interstate 77 has reopened in both directions in West Virginia after crews worked through the night to repair damage from a massive natural gas line explosion and fire.
Tuesday's inferno destroyed four homes and damaged others. It melted guardrails and left a huge swath of the interstate in Sissonville impassible. Nobody was killed, but several people were treated for smoke inhalation.
The interstate was reopened to traffic in both directions early Wednesday.
A roughly 800-foot section in both directions was baked by the heat.
