REEVES COUNTY - Officials are still on scene of a rig fire in Reeves County on Monday.

We’re told the blaze was put out early Thursday morning.

But because of changing weather conditions and gas flow from the well bore, the fire sparked back up to its original intensity.

Officials with Cimarex Energy and CUDD are working to remove debris.

Once it's removed, fire suppression will begin.

They're also monitoring for hydrogen sulfide, which is a hazardous gas.

No injuries have been reported.
