You may see fire in the sky thanks to pipeline maintenance

2020 will not include fire falling from the sky! Piedmont Natural Gas is just doing pipeline maintenance.

GREENSBORO, N.C. — If your commute takes you through Trinity you may see some fire in the sky. But it's not the end of the word.

Piedmont Natural Gas is performing pipeline maintenance. That work is expected to start Wednesday and go through June 25 barring weather events.

The work is happening near 4717 Old Hopewell Church Road. It includes the use of a flare stack. That's a large verticle pipe which may make a loud noise and shoot out a flame that may be visible to people nearby.  

The flare stack makes a whistling sound and may smell of natural gas.
According to Piedmont Natural Gas, it's a controlled process that's managed and monitored by the utility's personnel. 

Local fire department resources will also be available.
