CUSHING, Okla. (AP) -- An oil tank fire at Cushing that burned all day Thursday is now out.

Enbridge Energy Partners says the fire began about 6 Thursday morning and was out about 8:30 Thursday night.

The 80,000 barrel tank had about 8,700 barrels of crude oil in it when the fire began.

Officials say it appears the fire was started by lightning, but an investigation into the cause continues.
