An oil field explosion in Wyoming has injured three workers.

Fire officials say the workers were hospitalized after the blast late Thursday.

Their identities and conditions weren't available Friday.

The explosion happened near a small community southeast of the capital of Cheyenne.

Companies have drilled dozens of deep oil wells in a wide area east and south of Cheyenne over the past decade.
