09-27-17 Fire at Brainerd Road Gas Station

Command requested a full response and notified Special Operations, due to the fire being directly on top of underground lines and storage tanks of gasoline. Quint 13 deployed a hand line and a foam blanket was applied to the contaminated soil to prevent fuel vapors from igniting. The surrounding businesses were evacuated until there was no longer an immediate hazard. The operations caused westbound traffic on Brainerd Road to close one lane for approximately 90 minutes. The Storm Water Division of Public Works, the Office of Land Development, and the Fire Prevention Bureau were all notified and reported to the scene.

There were no injuries from the incident and Delta Express suffered no property damage from the fire. The store will remain closed, however, until approval to reopen is given from the Fire Marshal’s Office.
