Oil Well Burst in US

An oil and natural gas well exploded in US, Kentucky, in the town of Bulan, killing three workmen Thursday

An oil and natural gas well exploded in US, Kentucky, in the town of Bulan, killing three workmen Thursday.

The well exploded into flames Wednesday afternoon with a force that shook nearby homes; investigators were not sure what sparked the blast. Flames and heat from a fire that raged for more than 24 hours may have destroyed any clues to the cause.

William Douglas Bell, 37, of Helenwood, Tenn., died Thursday at Cincinnati University Hospital, a hospital spokeswoman said. Two others, Bill Chandler, 36, of Lost Creek, Ky., and Patrick Jeffers, 29, of Winfield, Tenn., were killed Wednesday.
