There was a massive fire at a gas station in Powhatan County Thursday night. Officials believe it was caused by static electricity from the driver of a car. The driver was not injured and there were nobody else at the gas station was injured. That type of fire can occur when somebody re-enters their vehicle while pumping gas and then discharges static electricity buildup when they get out of the car and remove the nozzle from the tank. Safety officials say 50% of such fires involved somebody getting back into the car while the gas was still flowing into the tank. If a fire does happen, they say you should leave the nozzle in the vehicle to prevent the fire from becoming more dangerous.
