    Default Bad Day

    http://www.localsyr.com/news/local-n...des/966146840#

    CONSTANTIA, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) - A fire sparked at a gas station in Constantia put the gas pumps out of service at the Nice N Easy on State Route 49 Saturday.
    Lieutenant Greg Baird said a call came into the Constantia Fire Department around 5:30 p.m. Saturday evening. A snowmobiler pulled up to fill his tank and told crews that a fire erupted just as he finished and pulled the nozzle out.
    A worker quickly shut off power to the pumps while they waited for firefighters to arrive. Crews were able to put out the fire with a combination of foam and water.
    The snowmobiles are destroyed, but no one was hurt.
    Firefighters believe the flames may have been sparked by static electricity. They want to remind individuals that the nozzle of a pump needs to stay in contact with the tank open during fueling.

    Everyone has been saying that the new owners of Nice and Easy arenít very snowmobile friendly. I guess they werenít kidding!

    Where was the stations fire suppressant system?. That should've activated. Makes for a mess, but......

    I seen something posted that 24hr gas stations are not required to have the fire suppressant systems?

    And both sleds we're Skidoo's.

    RR8,

    Have not heard that about 24 hr stations and no suppressant system. Would seem very odd if that was the case.
