HANNIBAL, Ohio (AP) — A fire at natural gas well site in southeastern Ohio near the West Virginia state line is forcing a few evacuations.

The operator of the site says the fire in Monroe County is on the surface and not burning in any of its wells.

Statoil USA Onshore Properties says those living near the site have been evacuated and that no one has been injured.

The State Highway Patrol says about five people volunteered to leave their homes.

The Columbus Dispatch reports that the site has eight wells with just one that is producing.
