A fire broke out at a crude oil tank farm near Houston on 12th May. Around 100 homes were evacuated but no one was hurt.
Investigators are trying to determine whether lightning struck one of the tanks amid thunderstorms in the area.
At least four tanks were set alight, and the blaze was brought under control within a few hours.
The terminal is located in Beach City, about 30 miles east of Houston.
