Van Zandt County fire Marshal Chuck Allen on Thursday announced the arrest of H.R. Price, 24, of Mineola, Brandy Wolfe, 24, of Grand Saline and Heather Wolfe, 25, of Van. Allen says Price and Brandy Wolfe were atop a storage tank during the January 29 blast near Van. Investigators have said both apparently were smoking and were treated for burns sustained in the blast. Warrants were issued Wednesday for the suspects with bond set at $150,000. All were no longer in custody Thursday. Officials didn’t immediately say whether the two women are related.
