HACKENSACK, N.J. (CBSNewYork) – A gasoline pump fire triggered at a New Jersey gas station after a driver pulled away and broke off a gasoline pump handle on Wednesday.

Fire officials say the blaze began at the Lukoil station at 20 Route 4 E in Hackensack.

Surveillance video shows a driver in a red vehicle tear down the pump as flames erupt at the pump’s base.

Moments later a station attendant runs out with a fire extinguisher and attempts to control the fire.

The Hackensack Fire Department says no one was injured in the incident.

    Jersey does not allow self-pump. Where was the attendant? Get rid of pumps on the floor. In Japan, the hose hangs down from a superstructure. So, nothing to hit on the ground.

    Oh, REAL intelligent! This person should NOT be allowed to drive a car!
