DAWSON CREEK, BRITISH COLUMBIA (AP) – Police are investigating an explosion targeting a gas pipeline on the British Columbia-Alberta border.

It was the second explosion targeting a gas line owned by Encana this week.

Sgt. Tim Shields said Thursday that the explosion detonated overnight appears to be a deliberate act. He says the blast left a crater in the ground under the natural gas pipeline, which was damaged but did not rupture.

Police say the explosion seems to be related to one earlier this week when a sour gas pipeline owned by Encana was bombed, about 31 miles east of Dawson Creek, British Columbia.
