Petroleum from - the -heavily
producing No. 1 Cole well, two
miles southwest of Gladewater,
was ignited, apparently by acci
dent, late yesterday. ,
After an airplane surrey of the
well, N. M. and Harry Kinley, ex
perienced Tulsa. Okla., fire fight
ers, laid plans to begin a fight to
morrow to extinguish me torcn.
They believed an unusually heavy
charge ot nitroglycerine would be
necessary to blast out the flames.
Fire charred bodies lay in
Longriew morgues. Two other
bodies were cremated at the site
of the derrick. v
Although ' Sinclair officials at
Tyler Intimated there was a pos
sibility the well was Ignited by in-
cendiarists, that theory was
scouted both by W. . Tom Colo,
owner of the lease and eye-witnesses
of the explosion, and by
Sheriff Martin Hayes of Gregg
Cole said the well was ignited
by friction sparks.'
The suspicion as to possible
incendiary origin of the fire was
baaed upon a recent letter sent
by Texas ' Ranger Captain Frank
Hamer to oil companies warning
of a possible communist plot to
damage oil field properties.
