     WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) - Federal and state investigators are at a Williston oil supply and logistics company where a massive fire erupted and disrupted road and air traffic.  Williams County Emergency Services spokeswoman Lorrie Wilson said officials with the state fire marshal's office and the federal Environmental Protection Agency were at Red River Supply on early today.
 
     She said it's uncertain when they'll determine the cause of the blaze that started midnight Monday and sent fireballs hundreds of feet into the air. The fire has since been extinguished.  No one was hurt but people within a half-mile area were urged to leave. Wilson said some did but most stayed.
 
     State records show several flammable chemicals were on the property. The state Health Department and other agencies had monitored air quality in the area.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Members of North Dakota's congressional delegation say they're encouraged by proposed rules for rail tank cars that carry crude oil.  Sen. John Hoeven and Rep. Kevin Cramer say the issue of rail safety is important, though they also want commonsense rules that are workable.
 
     U.S. regulators are proposing to phase out thousands of older rail tank cars that carry crude. It's the government's response to a series of fiery train crashes over the past year, including one at Casselton.
 
     The Department of Transportation said today that older DOT-111 tank cars will have to be retrofitted or replaced.  Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx also said the government's testing of crude oil from the Bakken shows the oil is more likely to ignite if spilled.

     MANDAN, N.D. (AP) - Officials in Mandan are considering using city sales tax money to spruce up store fronts and business landscaping along the 2-mile stretch of Memorial Highway commonly known as the Strip.
 
     The City Commission earlier this year applied for $200,000 from the Bush Foundation for the effort but failed to land a grant. The Bismarck Tribune reports that Mandan's Leadership, Pride and Image Committee is now proposing the use of sales tax revenue.
 
     A local development committee and the City Commission must approve the idea. If the program is approved it would mirror one already in place for downtown Mandan businesses.
 
     The Strip is one of the gateways to Mandan. Image Committee member Laurie Leingang says officials are "just trying to amp up our image."

     DICKINSON, N.D. (AP) - A Wyoming man who went missing in the western North Dakota oil patch has been found.  The Dunn County Sheriff's Office says 32-year-old Jared Holloway was taken to a Dickinson hospital on Tuesday to be treated for dehydration after being found in his tanker truck off a rural road.
 
     Holloway had not been seen since leaving a well site in McKenzie County late Friday. KXMB-TV reports that he was tracked through a GPS signal from his truck.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota's congressional delegation says Fargo, Williston and Hettinger are getting federal airport improvement grants totaling nearly $6 million.  The delegation says Fargo is getting the bulk of the funding to complete taxiway construction and runway rehabilitation projects at Hector International Airport.
 
     Hettinger Municipal Airport will receive $150,000 in federal funds for runway repair and other upgrades.  Williston's Sloulin Field International is getting a $700,000 grant to purchase a rescue and firefighting vehicle.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A federal grant is aimed at strengthening businesses and creating jobs in Indian Country in North Dakota.  The state's congressional delegation says the U.S. Department of Agriculture is giving a $175,000 grant to the Coalition of Indian Housing Authorities of North Dakota.
 
     The funds from USDA's Rural Business Enterprise Grant program will be used to establish a revolving loan fund for small and emerging businesses that benefit Native Americans living on or near reservations in North Dakota.  The money is part of $2.7 million awarded in 19 states.
