Smith County fire crews are on the scene of a gas rig explosion.
It happened just after 3 AM on FM 14, just south of County Road 317. Right now, crews are letting the fire burn out. We don't know what caused the explosion.
Firefighters say no one was injured in the fire. A nearby home was put on evacuation notice. Firefighters tell us the people in the home did not have to leave the area, just had to move away from the house. Several acres of land in that area caught fire after the initial explosion.
