We truly believe that image 3 and 4 were deciding factors to change the classification of Bakken Crude Oil. Estimates have been placed of the fireball over 550 feet in the air. Unbelievable photos...make sure to check out


Thank you to our friend Jennifer who took this photo over 30 miles away from the incident. Look at the impressive mushroom cloud with debris moving southeast.
