According to Howard County Volunteer Fire Chief Mitchell Hooper, the HCVFD got called out at approximately 1:30 am on January 1st for large flames on FM 669 and County Road 36. He advised that upon their arrival, they found 4 horizontal treaters on fire that had pressurized gas and oil coming out of them.


Chief Hooper noted that the oil company had shut down all of the oil wells coming into the location. HCVFD extinguished the ground spill and had to wait about 3 hours for the pressure to decrease enough so they could go in and close multiple valves to extinguish the rest of the fire and cool the tanks.


Temperatures during the night got down to 25 degrees with a wind chill of 10 degrees. No injuries were reported, just some frozen hoses and valves. Chief Hooper noted that the units went back in service around 5 am that same morning.
