The Associated Press reported today that authorities in eastern Ohio are getting numerous 911 telephone calls about a red glow in the night sky.
Jefferson County officials tracked the red skies to "flaring" or burning off natural gas at newly drilled wells.
The flaring can last for up to 10 days, said Chesapeake Energy Corp., the Oklahoma-energy firm that is a big player in Ohio's developing Utica shale.
