PRINCE GEORGE- Enbridge's Senior VP of Operations, Michele Harradence says crews are working to determine what caused that massive pipeline explosion Tuesday night. "It's way too early for us to speculate, it's very easy to want to speculate in these situations, but we have to discipline ourselves not to and find out the facts," she said. Harradence says they are working to get crews on the ground this evening as it's been unsafe to do so. However, both pipelines in the area have been shut off. Enbridge is vowing to keep nearby residents up to date with information as many are left feeling uneasy after the fire. The company saying the goal currently is to get the pipeline up and running again in a safe manner. "We have every resource you can imagine focusing on that because the consequences of not getting that gas flowing back through BC into the communities that we service is not one that we take lightly."  Harradence adds it's fundamental the company determines the cause and ensures this never happens again.
