A large blast has erupted at a gas pipeline in Central Iran, the Mehr News Agency reported, citing local officials. Evaluation teams have been dispatched to the area to survey the damage.

The explosion erupted in the early hours of Wednesday morning near the city of Borujen, some 64km (39 miles) south of the provincial capital of Shahr-e Kord, according to Mehr, which cited the local city administration and fire officials.

”The terrible sound and then the fire was caused by the explosion of the main gas transmission line of the country (line 65) between Halvai pass and Beldaji highway, and fortunately, until this moment, no one was injured or injured. There were no casualties,” Ismail Yazdani, the commander of Borujen’s fire department and security services, was quoted as saying.

Footage making the rounds on social media purported to show the aftermath of the blast, with a bright fireball and tower of smoke seen rising into the sky.
