Sulfur Fire in Worland “Like a UFO Crash Site”
Written by Andrew-Rossi on July 11, 2017
Firefighters in Worland Friday got to witness something unique.
An off road motorcycle ignited an old pile of sulfur Friday night – and firefighters said it looked like a UFO crash site or maybe a scene on another planet.
Video footage on KULR-8 Television’s website shows the bizarre effects of burning sulfur – a blue carpet of flame topped by twisting orange columns of fire. The fire gave off sulfur dioxide gas and firefighters wore breathing equipment to stay safe.
The fire happened at the former site of a sulfur plant. Worland Volunteer Fire Department Chief Chris Kocher says nobody was hurt or cited for causing the fire, and crews got the fire under control within 20 minutes.
