Oil Field Fire Sends Flames Shooting Into The Air

Eight volunteer firefighting crews responded to the blaze around eight o'clock this morning.  The explosion happened just off FM 2022, in Anderson County, near Slocum.  It's believed lightening from this morning's storms struck two, 300 barrel oil tanks.  At one point, officials said flames were shooting hundreds of feet into the air.  No one in the area was evacuated, and no serious injuries were reported.
