Tas firefighters expect blaze to stop spreading
A fire at a Northampton gas station caused by a customer’s faulty gas line triggered a fire Monday morning and prompted authorities to close a nearby gas station, fire officials said.
Nanner, Mass., Fire District Captain Ed Zielinski said Tuesday there was a gas line that was on fire and customers outside the gas station decided to turn off the pump.
Firefighters and officials worked to contain the blaze that continued to smolder after firefighters우리카지노 made the decision to shut down the gas station, which Zielinski said would last until morning.
“It was quite serious, especially given the fact there had been 더킹카지노no complaints about the station for some time,” Zielinski said.
Officials said a portable gas canister had exploded just before 6 a.m. and a customer who had just returned to the station told the station where he had left a spare pump.
The station closed, but fire officials could not say what caused the fire.

There were three other fuel tankers at the station and it’s possible both would have burned, Zielinski said.
No injuries were reported, he said.
Nanner firefighters arrived at the scene around 8 a.m. as the tankers were burning and there were alrea바카라사이트dy flames burning.
The fire damaged the wall outside the gas station, said Sgt. Peter Fortuna of the Nanner Fire Department.
Zielinski said the cause of the fire remains under investigation.
The fire was so bad for crews at the fire department that they had to keep working all day, he said.

“It was a tremendous amount of effort in the fire department on both sides that put out the fire from all sides, which took longer than people wanted to admit,” Zielinski said.
