Saltwater is natural. It’s found in oceans, underground and in our own bodies. That makes it seem like a fairly harmless substance. Saltwater does not burn when lit or when struck by lightning.
Firefighters from across Harrison County were called out when lightning reportedly struck a saltwater disposal facility early Wednesday night.
The facility was struck twice by lightening and caused nine tanks to catch fire. Saltwater burns? Who knew?
The fire marshall added that the contents of the tanks are considered hazardous material because it is mixed with crude oil.
They call it saltwater because they want you to be fooled, just like they call natural gas a “clean” energy.
