(NBC) - The rupture of a natural gas line and explosion in Texas was recorded Monday night by a police officer’s dash camera. 

The explosion occurred in Spearman, Texas, creating a massive fireball at a pipeline maintained by DCP Midstream.

As the officer drove toward the flames, the video shows a towering inferno.


Crews were able to cut off the gas, and the fire eventually burned itself out.

No injuries were reported.

It's unclear what caused the explosion or how long repairs on the pipeline will take.
