Massive Oil Company Fire in Ohio Under Control

Fifty agencies, including every fire department in Clark County (OH), responded to a three-alarm fire that ignited when a tanker being loaded with fuel caught fire.

The Springfield News-Sun (http://bit.ly/ITDkVI) reports that it took nearly six hours to get the fire under control. The newspaper details that a typical house fire doubles in size every minute but a fire with oil products involved will double every 20 seconds.

Water and foam was used but the fire was also let to burn to prevent runoff. The Ohio Environmental Protection Agency have determined that oil has spilled into a waterway near the oil company plant.

NBC 4 Ohio (http://bit.ly/HXgYrY) reports that one firefighter received minor injuries.
