St. Augustine-8-20-11

A major fire burned for more than two hours after an explosion at a gas station in St. Augustine, Florida Friday.

Firefighters say a fuel delivery was being made when something exploded.

Flames shot high into the air, but even the bright orange color was overpowered by the thick black smoke that filled the sky.

Crews were on scene minutes after the explosion.

A spokesperson for St Johns County Fire and Rescue says its wasn't an easy fire to get under control.

They still don't have an exact cause but they do know someone was there filling up fuel tanks for the station when the explosion happened.
