  • BOWBELLS, N.D. (AP) — The Burke County sheriff's office said an investigation continued Monday into the cause of a fire and explosion in the oil field south of Bowbells.
    Sheriff Barry Jager said in a prepared release that several oil tanks at a salt water disposal site caught fire Thursday and three exploded.
    He said the fire was contained on site and was allowed by the Powers Lake and Bowbells fire departments to burn itself out. No injuries were reported.
    Jager's office would not elaborate when contacted by The Associated Press. Calls to state officials were not immediately returned Monday.
