'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

Range Resources started a temporary flare tonight at a Marcellus shale natural gas well behind the Pittsburgh Mills mall.

Flaring, or controlled burning at the mouth of gas wells, allows for the analysis of production data and for scheduled maintenance at nearby gas well facilities.

Flaring at this well, located on Yutes Run Road on a hillside overlooking the mall and Route 28, has occurred before and generated much attention due to its prominent location and visibility from several miles away.

This flaring was expected to last a few hours and end early Sunday morning.

Range Resources said it notified township and emergency management officials and nearby landowners.
