LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

A flash fire at a ConocoPhillips plant in Wyoming injured two San Augustine men, one Hemphill man and one Milam man Wednesday morning.

According to a press release from the company, the flash fire immediately extinguished itself around 8:30 a.m. during a planned maintenance operation at the company's Lost Cabin Gas Plant near Lysite, Wyo.

Four contract employees, who work for Altair Strickland, were injured.

According to Jeffrey Webber, president of Altair, two of the injured were Derrell Dwayne Bennett, 42, and Joey Lee Holloway, 47, both of San Augustine.

Family members say the other two were Cody Clark, of Hemphill, and Christopher Lowe, of Milam. Webber was not immediately available to confirm the identities.

Holloway's injuries were less severe and he is being treated at a nearby hospital. The other three were taken by helicopter to a burn unit in Colorado.

"They seem to be doing OK," Webber said. "Right now we're concentrating on those three and working on getting their families there to see them."
