At 5 p.m. on Monday, Osceola County Fire Rescue Engines 71, 72, and 172 as well as Battalion 7 extinguished an RV fire next to a fuel pump at the 7-Eleven located at 7413 W Irlo Bronson Hwy. in Kissimmee.
Crews arrived at the 7-Eleven to find an RV parked at the gas pump fully engulfed with flames spreading up to the gas station overhang structure, and damaging the fuel pump. Thankfully, the emergency fuel shut-off had been activated and prevented any further fire spreading or explosions.
Crews used firefighting foam, which coats fuel and deprives it of oxygen. No one was injured in the incident, though there was significant damage to the fuel island overhang and adjacent gas pump.
