TF)--Lightning struck an oil tank battery in Enid Saturday causing a fire. The Enid Fire Department received a call just before 10:40 Saturday reporting the fire in the 1500 block of S. Imo, about midway through the mile section and a half-mile east off the roadway. Because of the contents of the tank, which were not pure crude oil, the well-site manager advised firefighters to not attempt to extinguish the fire but instead let it burn out. According to Enid News and Eagle, most of the liquid from the tanks did spill out, but was contained to the dike around the site built for that purpose. There were no other structures in the area and no injuries reported.
