PIEDMONT -

Firefighters are still on the scene of a gas line explosion and fire in Piedmont, Oklahoma.

Where this explosion happened on Waterloo is going to be shut down for some time. 

The crater in the road stretches more than 30-feet long.

This happened Wednesday night, and the fireball from this explosion could be seen rising more than 150-feet the air.

People could see it from multiple places in the OKC metro.

Logan County, Canadian County, and Kingfisher County Sheriff's Offices all responded with Piedmont Fire, Cashion Fire, and Oakcliff Fire.

While it was quite the spectacle to see, fortunately no one was hurt.

DCP Midstream owns the pipeline that blew. 

Investigators will be working to see what caused it, but right now the cause is still in question.
