Natural gas spewing from out-of-control well

HARRISBURG, Pa. There have been no reports of any injuries, according to the Department of Environmental Protection spokesman Dan Spadoni.

There are no homes within a mile of the well and the polluted water hasn't reached a waterway.

Friday morning the /*Federal Aviation Administration*/ issued a flight restriction, saying no planes below a 1,000 feet should go within three miles.

According to Spadoni, the accident took place Thursday night when unexpectedly high gas pressure in the new well prevented crews from containing it. Companies that specialize in out-of-control wells are on site.
