Slihe scene of the fire is at out

near the San Geronin river. It is
remiiote from any railroad. An oil
tii Id was being developed at that
place by the Penusyavina Oil

l'ittsburg men. The company had
bored a number of wells and all of
them were flowing oil in large
quantities. The product was
(being placed in earthen storage
tanks preparatory to shipping.
A careless workman accident

and the flames were communicat
el to the underground resevior of
oil. A terrific explosion occurred
which uplifted the earth's surface
thloughout the whole field. The
explosion was heard 75 miles
