Another Massive Hand Sanitizer Fire

George Plummer, KOOL 1055 News
 There was another huge hand sanitizer fire at a storage site between Chickasha and Ninnekah this past week. It was the third such fire that has taken place over the last three months. Last Thursday, it was at H and B Machine and Manufacturing which is just south of the U.S. Highway 81 and State Highway 19 junction. That’s just a half-mile from where the first hand sanitizer fire destroyed the former Chickasha Manufacturing Company.
 News reports indicate that Ninnekah Police Chief Scott Miller and District Attorney Jason Hicks both asked the OSBI to take over the investigation and officials have also asked federal agencies to look into the matter.
 As many as 2,000 pallets of expired hand sanitizer were believed to be inside and outside the metal building at the Ninnekah property. Bordwine Development Company was reported to have been leasing the facilities to store the expired sanitizer where the fires occurred.
 The state department of environmental quality issued a $6.6 million fine against the company after authorities say the firm dumped thousands of gallons of sanitizer into bar ditches near the site of the first two fires back in August.
