(Lancaster) -- A proposal to build 35 miles of natural gas pipeline in Lancaster County is generating a modest-sized protest in downtown Lancaster.

About 75 people attended the event by No Lancaster Pipeline. They're against a proposal by Williams Partners of Oklahoma, saying it would place demands on small fire companies and will contribute to the consumption of fossil fuels.

The gathering was one of several that have been held in the county in the past few weeks.

An open house by Williams Partners about the pipeline project earlier this month at Millersville University drew more than 1,000 people.
