No injuries in 2 Houston oil storage tank fires

|

HOUSTON — Investigators say lightning apparently sparked an oil storage tank fire in Houston that spread to another tank before both blazes were extinguished.

Nobody was hurt in the fires early Wednesday at Southwest Terminal Mineral Oil Co.

KTRK-TV reports fire officials say the insulation burned in both containers and the tanks were not breached.

The company says the tanks hold non-toxic mineral oil used in the automotive industry.
