Three Charged In Texas Oil Storage Tank Explosion

VAN (February 7, 2013)—A man and two women have been charged with trespassing and criminal mischief in connection with the explosion of an oil storage tank in Van Zandt County, authorities said.

On Thursday Van Zandt County fire Marshal Chuck Allen announced the arrest of H.R. Price, 24, of Mineola, Brandy Wolfe, 24, of Grand Saline and Heather Wolfe, 25, of Van.

Officials earlier said they thought two people were smoking atop the storage tank at the time of the blast on Jan. 29 near Van, about 75 miles east of Dallas.

Both were treated for burns.

Allen identified the two Thursday as Price and Brandy Wolfe.

Warrants for the three were issued Wednesday.

Bonds were set at $150,000.

None of the three was in custody Thursday.

Allen didn't immediately say whether the two women are related.
