Fire quickly suppressed when tractor-trailer hits gas pump
Rockland — A tractor-trailer pulled into the Circle K gas station at 136 Camden St. around 9:30 p.m. Friday, June 6, and side-swiped a gas pump, knocking it over, said Rockland Police Chief Bruce Boucher.
The fire that resulted from the pump's being knocked over was quickly put out by the station's fire suppression system, Boucher said.
One of the tires and a mudflap on the trailer were damaged. “There wasn't much damage at all,” said Boucher. He added that no one was injured and no charges had been filed as of Monday, June 9.
Boucher did not have access to the accident report, which he said had not been completed yet, so he did not have details about the driver of the tractor-trailer or other agencies that responded to the scene.
