Or an angel.

Only a living priest can administer a valid sacrament. I doubt that God would cause a miracle which had an invalid sacrament as part of it.

Maybe I missed it but where in the story is there mention of a sacrament? I saw mention of Holy Oil but it didn't sound like there was any Anointing of the Sick in the sacramental sense.

I assumed that it was anointing oil. I suppose I could be wrong. Although, IIRC When Voris interviewed the fire chief who had been there he (the fire chief) said that he described it to a local priest who told him that it sounded like the sacrament of Anointing of the Sick was performed.

You're right.  The article did state that the priest had anointing oil.

Baptist ministers certainly don't carry around anointing oil.
