Spectra Energy is now saying controlled flaring at its McMann Plant in Taylor should be completed sometime this afternoon. According to Taylor Fire Chief Dan Leighton, the flaring, which began just before noon today, drew the alarm of some residents who thought the plant was on fire. Spectra says the flaring was the result of a power outage earlier this morning which forced the McMann plant to flush its lines into the plant’s flare pits. To make matters worse, the outage also cut off the phone lines to the plant, leaving concerned citizens who called the plant with a somewhat disconcerting sound… [asset|aid=589|format=mp3player|formatter=asset_bonus|title=fc2a802eca37e837316bd6398a08f5ef-Disconnect_1_Pub.mp3] However, Spectra Energy’s Lise-Ann Jackson says no one was endangered as a result of the flaring.
