Firefighters Put Out Gas Pump Fire
On South Padre Island, a man drove off in his vehicle with the gas pump still attached to the gas tank and caused a fire.
The fire department reports that the man was filling up his vehicle at an Exxon station on Padre Boulevard and forgot to remove the nozzle from the tank and drove off. This caused the gas pump to be knocked over and starting a fire. There was no damage to the structure and the man will not face charges after turning himself in to police.
