Two loud explosions rocked the area in White Lake Township at about 10:30 p.m. Nov. 24.

The White Lake Township Fire Department responded to a resulting fire at Young Road and Bogie Lake Road.

A heavy fire was found in two large storage vessels on the north side of the Young Road refinery plant, officials say. The plant is a fossil fuel recovery plant (crude oil) owned and operated by Hound Resources.

Crews fought the fire for several hours and extinguished it without incident, said FD.

"Regardless of what is being posted on social media, there has been no recent hostile fires at this location," said the White Lake Township Fire Department.

The cause of the fire is still being investigated.

The White Lake Township Fire Department was assisted by Highland Township, Waterford Reginal, Springfield Township, Commerce Township, and Milford fire departments. The Oakland County Hazardous Materials Response Team monitored air quality and the Environment, Great Lakes and Energy (EGLE) State of Michigan has been notified.
