SALT LAKE'S BEST OF THE '90S TO NOW
 
 

Spectacular Explosion at Northeastern Utah Oil Field

A bizarre explosion -- in northeastern Utah, overnight -- damaged an oil well site, and sparked a small brush fire.

Altamont Volunteer Fire Chief Greg Miles says, it appears lightning caused an oil tank to explode and sail some 80 yards through the air.

No one was working at the time -- just after midnight, Tuesday morning -- so there were no injuries.

The small fire was extinguished within two hours.
