CASPER, Wyo. — State safety officials are investigating a flash fire at a natural gas processing plant in Fremont County that left four workers burned.
Three of the workers were flown by helicopters to hospitals after Wednesday morning’s fire at ConocoPhillips Lost Cabin plant, including one who was taken to a burn center in Greeley, Colo. They haven’t been identified and their conditions aren’t known.
The fire happened as workers were doing maintenance on part of the plant.
The Casper Star-Tribune (bit.ly/OX07Uj) reports that an explosion destroyed part of the plant in 2010. Nearby residents were told to evacuate then but there were no evacuations this time.
The latest fire was brief and went out on its own. ConocoPhillips said no natural gas was released.
