Man Dies in Oilfield Explosion

CAMPBELL COUNTY, Wyo. The Campbell County coroner says a 36-year-old man died in an oil processing site explosion Wednesday afternoon.

According to reports, Beau Damori from Gillette was found dead about four hours after the explosion.

The sheriff says two other men at the site were not injured.

County fire officials say the explosion caused a fire that engulfed ten large oil tanks, two passenger vehicles, two semi trucks, three buildings, two full 17 hundred gallon propane tanks, and set off a grass fire.

The fire burned for at least an hour and a half before the site was safe enough for firefighters to approach because of the burning propane.
