LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — A 2-mile section of the Arkansas River near Little Rock remained closed Wednesday following the rupture of a pipeline that released enough natural gas to fuel about 65 homes for a year.
U.S. Coast Guard spokesman Brian Porter said the section of the river, which is near Arkansas' busiest airport, will remain closed until Spectra Energy Corp. crews can check whether the pipeline poses a danger to boats. He said there have been no reports of injuries since the leak was reported Monday, and that the closure hasn't affected boat traffic because the river was already mostly closed due to flooding.
