Two oil storage tanks exploded in Robertson County Wednesday, resulting in one life threatening injury.
Sheriff Gerald Yezak says the victim was flown to Hermann Hospital in Houston.
Yezak says multiple agencies, including the Railroad Commission, are at the scene north of New Baden off Rabe Cutoff Road.
The sheriff says several people were working at the time of the explosions.
Yezak says both fires to both tanks have been contained and any spillage has been kept inside berms.
