LONGVIEW (KYTX) - Longview Fire crews are on the scene of an oil rig fire on Lake Lamond Road.

Longview Fire Marshal Johnny Zackary tells KYTX CBS 19 that workers were removing a pipe from a gas well when a flash of light fire caught an adjacent oil rig on fire.

One person was transported to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Traffic on Highway 80 near Bill Owens Parkway was disrupted while crews worked to contain the fire but has since been reopened.

Lake Lamond Road remains shut down between Cotton Street and Highway 80.
