When There's Smoke on the Mountain or Clouds in the Air, K-Best News Is There!

A severe thunderstorm on Tuesday night in Howard County made for a busy night for local volunteer firefighters. At approximately 9 PM that night, the Howard County Volunteer Fire Department was called to respond to a location in northern Howard County that had 8 tank batteries engulfed in flames. Later that night and into the early morning hours of the next day, the HCVFD responded to a total of 3 fires with a total of 10-11 tanks.


According to HCVFD Chief Mitchell Hooper, firefighters used a total of 12,000 gallons of water and 60 gallons of foam to extinguish the flames. He said they also had to call for assistance from the Ackerly Volunteer Fire Department to help supply water.


HCVFD Chief Mitchell Hooper told KBest News that they tanks belong to oil companies and they can catch fire when they are struck by lightning during thunderstorms.
