(KCEN) -- An Ohio family is living in fear of its own water.
That's because around Christmas time that water actually caught on fire.
They don't know why it's happening but they're concerned it may have something to do with a gas drilling operation across the street.
The drilling company paid for an EPA test of the family's well water and it showed levels around 9, which is acceptable.
But in December after drilling began, something changed.
Jason Kline, who lives at the home, said, "Methane levels have more than doubled and we're wondering if this is all just coincidental."
The Ohio Department of Natural Resources also tested the water in December and registered a level of 22.
Twenty-eight is considered hazardous.
The Klines say they are unaware of neighbors with similar problems.
The Ohio Department of Natural Resources has reported no case in which groundwater has been contaminated.
