During a trip to visit some friends, an accident starts a fire in an oil-well owned by MacGyver's friends. MacGyver and his buddy then go to fetch dynamite in an abandoned mine at great peril to themselves after they decide the dynamite is the only feasible way the fire can be put out. However, when they use it, the fire only becomes more intense. Can MacGyver and his Hellfire friend survive the incredible heat to put out the fire and save the oil buried underneath the well...?

If the escaping well-gas could actually be touched off merely by the small spark from a somewhat-distant shattering light bulb that was swinging in a strong breeze --- which incidentally would have been carrying the gas from the well away, also, and dissipating it enough that there might not be enough of a concentration to ignite --- then surely the small debris-fire that was still burning very near the well after Mac detonated the nitro over the well would have re-ignited the gas that was still coming up.

You know, back in the 1920's, they used to truck nitro out to the fields.
They used to call that a suicide run, didn't they?
