An explosion at an Oklahoma oil field caused multiple injuries


Authorities said an explosion at an oil field in Oklahoma injured multiple people.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says the explosion happened near Quinton in Pittsburg County, about 100 miles southeast of Tulsa.

The Pittsburg County Emergency Management Office tells KTUL that multiple volunteer fire departments are at the gas well site. The TV station reports that emergency management crews and the county sheriff's office also are on the scene.
