PYMATUNING, Penn. (WFMJ) - A Pennsylvania man was killed Monday while working on a tank at Brownies Oil Company in Pymatuning.
The tank, which held 10,000 gallons of off-road diesel fuel, caught fire and exploded.
Witnesses say the tank flew into the air, barely missing a house.
"I looked out the front window and all I saw was the black smoke. I didnt realize that was in my yard at that time," said Mary Kress, pointing to the 10,000 gallon fuel tank in her yard.
"I called 911 and went flying out there becasue she was saying whats going on, and I stopped dead when I saw the tank sitting there because that's like 30 feet from my kitchen," said Kress.
