Drilling rig

Several Randolph County volunteer fire departments were dispatched to County Road 874 near Harmon Crossroads on Tuesday morning where a truck with a drilling rig owned by Steve Hanners Well Drilling of Lineville had caught fire. Firefighters from Dickert, Corinth, Rock Stand and Tin Shop were dispatched, along with Randolph County EMA.

Workers on site said they were operating the truck's drill when the fire began in what they believed to be one of the truck's hydraulic systems between the cab and the drill structure. The fire was doused in relatively short order once firefighters arrived.
