Civil Lawsuits Filed Over Oklahoma Wildfire

February 16, 2013

More than 60 civil lawsuits have been filed against an Oklahoma pipeline company over damages from a summer wildfire at Glencoe.

The latest to join the court action over the Aug. 4 blaze is Hesser Holdings LLC, which says in court papers that the fire started due to work by Global Pipeline Construction, which was welding at the time.

Hesser Holdings lost 240 acres of land that it had planned to auction.

The Stillwater News-Press reports the fire destroyed 2,000 acres and 17 homes in Glencoe.

The suit is to be heard on Feb. 21.
