One Dead in Well Tank Explosion

One person died and two others were injured during a well tank explosion on Walker Road in Mansfield Tuesday. The crew was cleaning up storm damage at Aethon Energy when the explosion occurred.

One of the workers was pronounced dead at the scene, another had to be airlifted with serious injury and the other was treated for minor injuries. Desoto Parish authorities say the blast didn’t endanger any surrounding businesses or homes.

According to a spokesman for the company, “A tragic accident occurred while a contractor’s workers dismantled a tank. Our thoughts and prayers are with the individuals and their families during this difficult time. The cause is being investigated in cooperation with applicable governmental regulatory agencies.”

An investigation into the explosion is ongoing.
