No injuries in natural gas well fire in Denton, blaze out

DENTON, Texas (AP) — A natural gas well fire in North Texas has been put out as authorities try to determine whether lightning sparked the blaze.

Denton city spokeswoman Lindsey Baker says firefighters extinguished the blaze early Friday. Nobody was hurt.

Baker says authorities received word of the well fire shortly before 10 p.m. CDT Thursday. Storms were in the area at the time.

She says eyewitness reports indicate a lightning strike may have started the fire, which burned more than four hours before being put out.

Fire department officials monitored air quality at the site.
