A Utah well operated by Devon Energy (DVN) caught fire early Tuesday and could take up to a week to put out. The fire prompted a precautionary evacuation of an area extending for a half-mile radius of the rig. Crews had just completed drilling a vertical well shaft at the site; concerns over the release of hydrogen sulfide gas prompted the evacuation.
