    Coal mine on W.Va.-Pa. line evacuated due to smoke

    Associated Press reported that a CONSOL Energy mine near the West Virginia Pennsylvania line has been evacuated after smoke was seen coming from one of the mine's airshafts.

    The company said that more than 120 day shift workers at the Blacksville No 2 mine were safely evacuated on Tuesday afternoon. No one sustained injuries.

    CONSOL said it is working with state and federal officials to determine the location of the incident and the origin of the smoke.

    The company says it doesn't know when mine operations will resume.

    The Charleston Gazette reports that, according to federal data, the underground mine employs more than 500 workers and produced more than 3.2 million tons of coal last year.
