A Hummer in Florida burst into flames right after a driver filled four containers with gas.
Citrus County Fire Rescue said they responded to a call at a Texaco Food Mart in Homosassa, Fla. for a vehicle on fire on Wednesday.
Four 5-gallon containers filled with gasoline were in the back of the vehicle when it caught fire, officials said.
One person was injured but refused to be treated. The cause of the fire is under investigation by the Florida State Fire Marshal’s Office.
Thousands have been running to gas stations after the Colonial Pipeline shutdown caused panic buying. Videos and photos circulated of long lines and some putting extra gas in plastic bags.
The pipeline restarted its system on Wednesday and by Thursday the Colonial Pipeline Co. said product delivery had commenced for all the markets they serve.
