Windsor Severance Fire Crews put the blaze out quickly.

“We had plenty of time to set up our operations with water and foam and get that to lob over it,” said Windsor Severance Fire Rescue Battalion Chief Todd Vess.

This fire is one of the latest in Weld County.

There was a much larger fire and explosion at a different Noble site last week.

And late last month an explosion at a Mallard exploration site storage tank injured three.
