Investigators Probe Cause of $800K Pennsylvania Oil Company Fire

April 1, 2009

A state police fire marshal is investigating a fire that caused $800,000 damage to an oil company building in north central Pennsylvania.

Officials with Minard Run Oil Co. say they’ll rebuild their Wells Service Division building, possibly on the same site where it burned down Saturday in Lafayette Township in McKean County. The building is located about 75 miles southeast of Erie.

Minard Run’s Well Service Division opened Jan. 1. Minard officials say they hope the division will grow into an independent country within a few years.

The fire destroyed the building on Saturday.
