Home > Gas Pump Error Becomes Hazmat Incident

ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. -- What started as a planned day of wahoo fishing became a hazardous materials incident when a boater pumped 71 gallons of gas into the rod holder rather than the gas tank.


St. Johns County Fire and Rescue was called to the RaceTrac gas station on State Road 16 at Interstate 95 before dawn Thursday.


Rather than the gas filling the tank, it filled the hull of the boat. The gas station was closed for more than two hours while the hazmat team disabled all electronics on the boat to minimize the risk of an explosion and drained the gas 5 gallons at a time.


No one was injured, but the boat will require some maintenance before it can be used again.


The boater, a man with 40 years experience, has a new fishing story, just not one he will be proud to tell.
