Crude Oil Gushes in Lone Grove

A Lone Grove man found a stream of crude oil running across his property on Monday afternoon. An oil pump belonging to Phoenix Oil broke a fitting east of his home on Cheek Road.

A stream of oil and water flowed for about 150 yards.

Workers from the company began to clean the spill Monday afternoon, although neighbors say this has happened before.

The Corporation Commission says they are looking into the incident.
