A fire broke out at the Mobile gas station on the corner of Empire Blvd. and New York Ave. in Crown Heights, injuring one of the workers employed there.
The incident occurred at around noon, when a fire broke out in the service bay area of the station.
One of the employees dragged the burning item outside, likely saving the building from burning down, but injuring himself in the process.
The worker suffered serious burns to his hands and torso, and was treated at the scene by EMS. The fire was quickly extinguished by the FDNY.
The cause of the fire is unknown at this time, and is the subject of an investigation.
