Missaukee County Oil Well Explosion Injures Two Men

Two men suffered burns after an explosion at an oil well in Missaukee County.

Crews responded to Moorestown and Muskegon roads around 11:30 Tuesday morning.

The sheriff’s office says crews were servicing the oil well when the explosion happened.

A 65-year-old man from Kalkaska and a 56-year-old man from Gaylord took themselves to the hospital to treat their burns.

Their current condition is still not clear.

Crews from both Missaukee and Roscommon counties responded to the scene.
