A Burleson County explosion left a contractor dead and injured several others on Wednesday, January 29, 2020. The incident happened due to an oil well blowout south of Caldwell in Burleson County.
According to the Texas Department of Public Safety, the incident was reported at around 3:00 p.m. and occurred along County Road 127 south of Deanville. The oil well blowout resulted in several medical helicopters being dispatched to the scene, and firefighters from multiple agencies responded promptly to the incident.
The Burleson County Sheriff’s Office reported that the oil well site belongs to Chesapeake Energy. Representatives from the oil company were on site, and fires were still actively burning as of Wednesday afternoon as a result of the Deanville explosion.
The Chesapeake Energy explosion also resulted in the closure of County Road 127, west of FM 60.
Anyone who has been affected by the Chesapeake Energy oil well blowout should secure legal representation for any injuries and/or property damage.
