A lawsuit that alleged a Fort Worth-based oil company's equipment sparked massive wildfires in the Panhandle in 2006 has been settled.
The wildfires swept across nearly a million acres of parched prairie, killing 12.
Details of the settlement were not disclosed and a call to Cano officials seeking comment Tuesday was not immediately.
Wes Reeves, spokesman for Xcel, which had sought about $2 million in damages in the case that was set to begin next month, said the company had no comment. He said he believed the settlement was reached last week.
