Pennsylvania State Police say they are investigating an electrical fire at a Chesapeake Gas pad site in Susquehanna County.

Officials say the blaze was reported at around 1:30 a.m. January 8 in Auburn Township at a trailer that was located away from actual drilling operations. 

There were no injuries.

The latest fire at a gas industry site comes two days after firefighters were called to a compressor site in Windsor in Broome County for a gas-fueled blaze in a building at the Williams Compressor Station.

Nine fire companies responded to the 7 p.m. fire January 6 on Dunbar Road and were able to put out the blaze, using foam, after the gas was shut off.

There were no injuries.

The cause of that fire is also under investigation.
