Residents of Penal Rock Road broke out into panic on Sunday after a bush fire engulfed two oil wells, fuelling fear of an explosion.
However, firefighters were able to get the blaze under control with no loss to property and no injuries.
Apart from a house about 100 feet away, the wells are situated in a bushy area a few feet away from the road at the one and three quarter mile mark. However, there are houses on the opposite side of the road.
