Coast Guard responds to gas pipeline fire near Port O'Connor, Texas

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — A Unified Command has been established and is continuing to respond to a gas pipeline fire near Port O'Connor, Texas, Wednesday morning. 

The Coast Guard is working closely with the Texas General Land Office and RLB Contracting, Inc. to extinguish the fire on the barge and move the dredge and accompanying barges away from the ship channel.

“We’re very sensitive of the dredge location and ensuring it remains clear of all vulnerable wildlife areas and Port O’Connor” said Captain Tony Hahn, commander of Sector/Air Station Corpus Christi.  “Working closely with the Unified Command, our top priority is extinguishing the fire so we may eliminate any threat of pollution to the waterway.”
