MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) - A mine straddling the Pennsylvania-West Virginia line that was closed March 12 by a fire is set to reopen.
 
CONSOL Energy Inc. says state and federal officials have given the company the green light to re-enter the Blacksville No. 2 mine on Wednesday, provided that atmospheric testing allows.
 
The mine was evacuated two weeks ago when smoke began pouring from the Orndoff shaft in Wayne Township, Pa.
 
About 120 workers have been idled while CONSOL pumped in water and nitrogen to extinguish the fire. The company said testing indicates the fire has been snuffed.
 
The mine produces approximately 400,000 tons of coal per month.
