“The other day, one of the wells on our place had a pit fire. Something was wrong with the treater, I suppose. Instead of separating the oil and gas and water, the treater was dumping the oil and the water, or one of the two, into the gas line. It happens throughout the oil patch…it just happens a lot. So, anyways, we spotted it during the day, when I was chasing down a cow. You could see black smoke, a whole lot of it, from real far away. And I went over there, and the pumper was getting it fixed, so, you know. I didn’t worry. But then that night– well, it was worse. There was a huge fire.”
