Fort Bend County Precinct 1 Constable Chad Norvell confirmed that the pipeline was carrying natural gas, according to Houston KIAH. He said the pipeline would have to burn out before authorities can take more action to fix the ruptured structure.

The pipeline may have to burn all the gas inside it before authorities can seal off the jeopardized section of the infrastructure.

Reporters viewing the fire from a Houston KTRK-TV helicopter indicated the fire was visible from as many as thirty miles away.

Will this make gas prices worse?

The explosion comes as Americans are burdened by exorbitant gas prices.

Even residents of Texas, a state known for its abundant gas resources, are paying $4.33 for an average gallon of gas, according to AAA.

Texas produces the most fossil fuels in the nation.
