Don't be alarmed if you see a fire Thursday night at Bell Oil Company off Pepper's Ferry Road in Montgomery County.

A valve failed on a 1,000-gallon propane tank.

Emergency officials say the safest way to fix the problem is by doing a controlled burn.

That will begin Thursday at 8 pm. It could take up to 10 hours to complete.

Once the tank is empty, it will be hauled off for repairs.
