COOKE COUNTY, TX - The TCEQ is investigating what could be in the air after a massive Cooke County fire produced smoke that could be seen for miles.
Texas Commission on Environmental Quality investigators were at the site of an oil tank battery fire south of Gainesville taking air samples, to determine if last night's blaze released chemicals that are hazardous to nearby residents. Cooke County fire officials said the fire, sparked by a lightning strike, burned itself out early Wednesday morning and residents can resume outdoor activities.
The TCEQ expects to release their findings within 60 days.
