Gas plant that caught fire Sunday is running again

WILLISTON, N.D. -- A natural gas processing plant that was shut down due to a fire on Sunday morning, July 8, is already back in operation.

Stephanie Higgins, a spokesperson for ONEOK, said the plant resumed normal operation Tuesday night.

“The fire was exclusively limited to a single utility building associated with our de-ethanizer plant,” she said.

The fire on Sunday happened at about 9 a.m. and resulted in evacuation of the facility.

Williston Rural Fire Department, who was on the scene of the fire on Sunday, said damage from the fire was contained to ONEOK’s property, and that it did not force the evacuation of private residences.
