A 26-inch gas line owned by Tennessee Gas Pipeline ruptured early Wednesday morning in Clark County on Irvine Road near Trapp, about five miles from the company’s compressor station. There was no fire from the rupture, no reports of injuries, no reports of damage and no customer impact, according to a pipeline company spokesman. Gary Epperson, Clark County Emergency Management director, said the rupture was heard in at least Montgomery, Powell and Clark counties.
