KEYESPORT, Ill. (KMOX) – A fast-moving thunderstorm may be to blame for the thick black smoke rising between Clinton and Bond counties in Illinois, Saturday afternoon.

From the photos, it appears a type of oil storage tank caught on fire near Keyesport Road.

It’s possible lightning may have struck the tank.

We’re awaiting official word on the cause and amount of damage.
