Car Crashes Into Gas Pump in Ceres
This evening Ceres Engine 15, Ceres Battalion Chief 3, and Modesto Truck 1 were dispatched to a vehicle accident with pin-in at the Shell station on 4th Street. Initial reports were that a car and gas pump were on fire and people were trapped in the car. Battalion Chief 3 upgraded the incident to a potential structure fire, bringing Ceres Engine 18 to the scene.
Crews arrived and found a car that had come off of Highway 99, struck a gas pump, and caught fire. Fortunately there were no injuries, the gasoline pump safety systems engaged, and the fire was extinguished before it was able to spread to nearby cars and buildings.
After determining there were no injuries, crews prevented gasoline, oil, and other fluids from entering the storm drain system.
