Witnesses Describe Logan County Gas Explosion

From Newson6.com

WELLSTON, Oklahoma - We're learning more about an explosion at a large natural gas compressor in Logan County, Thursday night.

Wellston, Okla. residents have seen big grassfires before, but not anything like the blaze at the DCP Midstream compressor plant around 9:30 p.m. Thursday.

"Whenever this happened last night, it kind of sounded like a sonic boom," says William Savory, who has lived in Wellston for 20 years.

"Last night, me and my wife felt a shake, and I saw it on Ch. 9 when they had the helicopter flying over they showed the flames." Savory says.

No one was injured, but three homes had to be evacuated. Savory says a DCP Midstream representative said they would pay for his hotel if he wanted to evacuate, but his family decided to stay.
