Propane tanks were engulfed in flames by the time the first engine arrived on-scene. Both the tires and propane tanks caught fire then exploded. During this, ROute 422 traffic was at a standstill and fire police directed traffic onto West Old Route 422.

No one was injured in this damaging fire, and the road has since reopened.
