Natural Gas Drilling Fluids Spewing From Clearfield County Well
HARRISBURG, Pa.(AP)_ Pennsylvania environmental officials say natural gas and polluted drilling water are pouring from an out-of-control well in rural Clearfield County.

Department of Environmental Protection spokesman Dan Spadoni said Friday that no one has been reported injured and the drilling water hasn't reached a waterway.

The Federal Aviation Administration issued a flight restriction in the immediate area shortly after 11 a.m.

Spadoni says the accident happened late Thursday night when unexpectedly high gas pressure in the newly drilled EOG Resources well prevented crews from containing it.

He says emergency crews have been at the scene all morning and companies that specialize in out-of-control wells are on site.

He says there are no homes within a mile.
