Several fire departments responded to an industrial fire at a facility in Woodward, early Wednesday morning.

Dispatchers tell News 9 the fire at Basic Sediments and Waste Solutions is contained and there's no immediate threat to the area.

Three workers were on site when several tanks exploded at the facility just after midnight. All employees made it out safely.

It appears a mechanical device malfunctioned and started the fire, according to Woodward County Emergency Management Director Matt Lehenbauer.
