On Wednesday afternoon – at the place where Melluži and Strēlnieku avenues connect in Jūrmala – the passing and passing eyewitnesses captured a terrible sight. A car caught fire at the gas station. Its owner says that he did not sit behind the wheel, but how much he knew to tell a relative who was entrusted with the vehicle, what happened is related to a technical problem.
Although the situation turned out to be really dangerous, the work of rescuers deserves praise, says car owner Artūrs. The gas station is protected and it is not insignificant.
It turned out that the car was removed from the car service the previous day only to be taken for inspection. But now, completely unplanned, he will be at a new car.
The incident has caused a slight downtime at the petrol station, but the incident should not have a significant impact on the business.
