As seen by Kathy in Port Huron, Michigan –
Kathy Jo Berry:
“Huge flare tonight, lit up my living room. Tried to call it in to spills line, but toll free doesn’t work from the U.S. Finally got through with some help from a friend. The photo doesn’t really show the magnitude of it.
When I called the ministry, they said they were going to call ESSO. A few minutes later the flame diminished significantly and was almost invisible. My guess is that they told the ministry that nothing was going on, and stopped the dirty burn off.
I contacted the times herald the next morning, but they never got back to me.”
