— An oil tank battery caught fire Thursday morning but has been extinguished, a Del City fire spokesman said.

No injuries were reported, said fire Maj. Brandon Pursell.

Firefighters extinguished the blaze at NE 10 and Vickie Drive.

The tank was empty but previously had contained jet fuel, Pursell said. It had been empty since 2003. Workers were trying to demolish the tank when it caught fire. He did not have a damage estimate.

NE 10 between Sooner Road and Vickie was closed while firefighters put it out, Pursell said.
