VAN — A man and two women have been charged with trespassing and criminal mischief after an East Texas oil storage tank exploded.
Van Zandt County fire Marshal Chuck Allen on Thursday announced the arrest of 24-year-old H.R. Price of Mineola, 24-year-old Brandy Wolfe of Grand Saline (suh-LEEN’) and 25-year-old Heather Wolfe of Van.
Allen says Price and Brandy Wolfe were atop a storage tank during the Jan. 29 blast near Van, about 75 miles east of Dallas. Investigators have said both apparently were smoking and were treated for burns sustained in the blast.
Warrants were issued Wednesday for the suspects with bond set at $150,000. All were no longer in custody Thursday and jail records did not list attorneys for them. Officials didn’t immediately say whether the two women are related.
