A powerful explosion injures one man overnight in rural Osage County.
The explosion happened shortly after midnight at an oil tank battery about 3 miles west of Prue.
In fact, the explosion was powerful enough to blow the lid from one oil tank across a nearby county road.
Quick work by crews from several rural fire departments helped put the flames out quickly. Fire officials say a man was hurt, but he managed to drive himself to a Tulsa hospital.
There is no word on the man's condition.
Cause of the explosion remains under investigation.
