Officials say no one was injured when an oil rig burst into flames in Shelbyville.

Lightning apparently hit the rig Tuesday setting thousands of gallons of oil on fire.

Nearly 100 firefighters from several area departments responded to the blast.  The fire was put out fairly quickly and everyone walked away uninjured.
