MOUNDSVILLE, W.Va. (AP) - An emergency official says no one was injured when a storage tank fire broke out at a drilling well pad in Marshall County.

Marshall County Emergency Management director Tom Hart says the fire was reported around 4:45 a.m. Wednesday at Gastar Exploration’s Armstrong pad near the Wetzel County line.

Hart says four to five tanks were burning when firefighters arrived. The fire was extinguished in about an hour and the well pad wasn’t damaged.

Hart didn’t know what the tanks contained.
