FIRE! Waste Injection Well in Johnson Co TX Started on Fire

15 October 2007 at 4:02:49 PM

Yeah. They're safe. Yuh-huh.

Firefighters are battling a blaze at a gas well injection site between Keene and Cleburne this afternoon.

The fire destroyed a tanker truck and a service vehicle, said Gerald Mohr, Johnson County’s emergency management coordinator.

A man was taken to an area hospital by air ambulance, but Mohr did not know the extent of his injuries.

Mohr said the fire started along U.S. Highway 67 in an open pit at an injection site where hot salt water used to fracture gas wells was being pumped into a containment well. He did not know how the fire started.

The fire is almost under control, he said.

More from the Cleburne Times-Review

At least one person was injured in a large fire Monday at Bridgeport Tank Trucks Ltd., a company that services natural gas companies, in Keene, Cleburne’s fire marshal said.

The victim’s identity and condition were not released. The person was flown to a Fort Worth hospital for treatment, Cleburne Fire Marshall Bill Wright said.

The fire apparently started when a small engine backfired near an open tank holding flammable materials, said the county’s emergency coordinator, Gerald Mohr.

The fire burned two trucks at the salt water storage plant
