Fire Destroys Building, Equipment
Owned by Minard Run Oil Co.

A fire Saturday morning destroyed a building, trucks and equipment owned by Minard Oil Company Wells Services Division.

A passerby reported the fire at 4:08 a.m. Saturday near the intersection of Big Shanty and Taintor roads.

The contents of the building included three new water hauling trucks, a pickup truck, tools and oil field equipment. The building also housed an office.

Several explosions were caused by the cutting torch tanks and 55-gallon drums of products being stored on the property.

No one was injured. About 45 firefighters from Lafayette Township, Lewis Run, Bradford Township and Hilltop battled the blaze.

A state police fire marshal was called to the scene. Fire crews were called back to the scene late Saturday night for a re-kindle.
