Trinidad & Tobago — A PETROTRIN gas line running along the M2 Ring Road caught fire yesterday.

The gas line, which runs from Barrackpore to the Pointe-a-Pierre oil refinery, was ignited by a bush fire at Harripaul Village, Picton Settlement, near San Fernando.

The incident occurred at 7.30 am, according to a report from the Fire Services.

Firemen responded and immediately extinguished the blaze.

There were no injuries, but pupils of the nearby Picton Presbyterian Primary School were sent home because of the intense heat.

Residents of Harripaul Village and Ragoo villagers were also forced to take evasive action from the intense heat.

No one was injured.
