Oil tank fire near Piedmont

Lightning is believed to have caused a fire inside an oil storage tank. Huge flames were seen billowing from the container near Piedmont Friday morning.

Fire crews from Piedmont, Deer Creek and Yukon teamed up to tackle the blaze. 4 wheel drive vehicles were required to get to the fire because of the muddy conditions.

Crews say their biggest worry wasn't about another explosion, but about the possibility of the tanks collapsing around them.
