A Small Fire at Gas Station Escalates into Something Else

The fire was caused by a spark ignited from a scooter which came to fill at the station, but grew as a motorist left, spilling fuel to the ground from a hose still in his vehicle.

Attempts by the gas station attendant to put out the fire were pointless. The fire started at around 11.45pm was immediately brought under control by the fire brigade. No casualties were reported.
