TYLER COUNTY, W.Va.---
 
Crews are purging a new well at the Lisby Pad along Indian Creek Road about 8 miles south of Middlebourne.
 
EMA Director Tom Cooper said that work is giving off fumes.
 
Thursday night into Friday morning, people within a couple of hundred yards of the site were evacuated from their homes.
 
Officials said it was precautionary and was largely due to the smell.
 
Those families have since returned to their homes.
 
Cooper said the work is almost finished.
