Crane Caught in Fire

Corpus Christi, Texas

A crane operator had a lucky escape last week, in Corpus Christi, Texas, after a hydrogen pipe failed and caught fire at a CITGO refinery. The fire quickly spread to a Rough Terrain crane which then caught fire itself.

The operator was able to escape unharmed from the crane, a Terex RT belonging to local rental company Scott Macon Equipment. No one was injured in the accident.
