FALLS CITY -- Two men suffered burns Sept. 22 in a fire at an oil-well site on F.M. 887 northeast of here. Sgt. Tony Ross of the Texas Department of Public Safety Highway Patrol said Houston-based Amerril Energy LLC operates the well.

Officials have not released the identities of the injured workers. Ross said one man suffered third-degree burns and was flown to the Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio. The other victim, who received first-degree burns, was transported via ambulance to the Otto Kaiser Memorial Hospital in Karnes City.

Firefighters from Karnes City and Falls City were dispatched to the scene, approximately 1-1/2 miles east of U.S. 181, at 11:30 a.m. Chief Raymond Dziuk of the Falls City Volunteer Fire Department said smoke was visible from the center of town. As of 3:15 p.m., firefighters were still at the scene.

Texas Railroad Commission Spokesman Ramona Nye said the commission’s preliminary investigation has revealed that a hot-oil truck owned by Texas Hot Oilers caught fire.

Ross said troopers did not have to evacuate nearby residents, but did secure a 1-mile perimeter at the height of the blaze.
