Williston Police are looking for two men they say shot at a 7-year-old girl while she was riding her bike....

     WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) - Williston Police are looking for two men they say shot at a 7-year-old girl while she was riding her bike Thursday night.  Detective David Peterson tells the Williston Herald the incident happened around 8 pm in the 1900 block of 23rd Street West.
 
     The two men were driving an older black Chevy Silverado pickup. Police say they drove off after they fired shots in the area where the girl was biking. Peterson says a responding officer noticed minor injuries on the girl's right knee, but didn't know she got hurt.  The investigation is ongoing.

     WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) - An official with the Environmental Protection Agency says cleanup efforts at an oil supply company in Williston are set to take weeks after much of the facility burned earlier this week
 
     EPA On-Scene Coordinator Paul Peronard says it wouldn't surprise him if it took two months to clean up the site. The fire at the site is mostly out but debris is still smoking. Peronard says firefighters anticipate flare ups once workers start removing debris.
 
     Officials say the fire at Red River Supply began about midnight Monday and burned for most of Tuesday. At its height the blaze sent fireballs hundreds of feet into the air and forced a half-mile evacuation around the site.  The facility stored dozens of chemicals used by the oil industry according to state records.

The other five will help patrols in the rest of the oil field counties.
 
     The Legislature appropriated $3.8 million in funding in 2013 to put additional troopers on the road, primarily in western North Dakota.  The state has added 20 trooper positions since 2011. Most of those troopers have gone to western North Dakota.
 
     The Patrol held a ceremony for the new graduates Friday at Bismarck State College.
