Ky. fire marshal investigating gas station fire in Livermore

Posted: Updated:
LIVERMORE, KY (WFIE) -

The owners of the Valero gas station, as well as the state fire marshal, are still investigating why a semi caught fire, causing three gas pumps to go up in flames as well.

There's no official cost of damage, but owner David Ball says they'll have to purchase three new dispensers, each costing over $1,200.

Crews were out Wednesday cleaning up the damage after the fire Tuesday.

Ball was notified immediately when it happened and he says the fire could've been a lot worse.

"The fire department in Livermore was really fast getting here and they got the fire out really quickly," said Ball. "It could've been bad and maybe even got into our building." 

Ball says the driver of the semi involved, whose name hasn't been released, was taken to a Louisville hospital to be treated for burns.

There is no word on his condition.
