DNR FO6 from Atlantic was called to the site by first responders on April 27, 2020 after a report of an explosion at a gas station. The station and associated auto service bay was completely destroyed. Fire Marshal has determined that a leaky fitting on the underground piping associated with the AST and dispenser leaked fuel, which produced vapors in the basement of the station, and eventually reached the LEL. The in initial explosion was followed by a second larger explosion as the remaining fuel in the AST ignited. Two people were injured, none seriously. DNR will be requiring an assessment of subsurface contamination and a receptor survey.
