NATRIUM, W.Va. (AP) — A natural gas processing plant in West Virginia's Northern Panhandle has reopened four months after it was damaged by a fire.

Blue Racer Midstream said Monday in a news release that the plant in Natrium returned to service recently.

The fire occurred Sept. 21, 2013. No one was injured.

The company also says it expects to complete a second natural gas processing plant in Natrium in early March. The new plant will expand the complex's processing capacity to 400 million cubic feet per day.

Blue Racer Midstream is a joint venture between Richmond, Va.-based Dominion and Caiman Energy II.
