This facility is located approximately 13 miles northeast of Guymon. “Upon Emergency Services arrival, found an isolated building on site with fire and smoke coming from inside”, said Assistant Chief Grant Wadley. A single DCP worker was quickly located on site who could give Firefighters account of the incident. 4 DCP workers were at the site when the building that housed drying operations suddenly exploded. 2 of the workers were in the building at the time of the explosion and escaped out an exit. Another worker outside the building extinguished both men that were still on fire as they exited the building. Both burn victims were placed in a company vehicle and transported to Memorial Hospital of Texas County before Fire and EMS arrived on scene. Both victims were later transferred in critical condition to the Burn Unit in Lubbock, Texas. “Cause of the explosion and fire is unknown at the time and being investigated by DCP Officials”, said Assistant Chief Wadley. The fire was allowed to burn itself out. DCP officials were able to isolate the building and its contents from the rest of the plant site. The Straight Elementary School was quickly evacuated for precautionary measures at the time of the explosion in which no children or school officials were injured. Emergency Services Departments that responded included the Guymon Fire Department with EMS, Hooker Fire Department, Hooker EMS, Texas County Sheriff Office, OHP, Texas County District #1 and #2, and Texas County Emergency Management. Units remained on scene for over an hour as DCP continued to isolate and investigate this incident. .
