A Florida driver who stocked up on large containers of fuel despite the state's gas shortage, is facing hefty consequences.
The Hummer caught fire moments after they filled four large containers with gasoline at the Texaco gas station in Homosassa.
Citrus County Fire Rescue (CCFR) responded to reports of the vehicle engulfed in flames around 11am on Wednesday (US time).
Firefighters were able to extinguish the blaze within 10 minutes, and there was one injury, according to Fox 13 News.
The shutdown of the Colonial Pipeline, which carries fuel to the nation's East Coast, began after a ransomware attack on Friday.
On Wednesday, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis warned residents not to panic buy and said unnecessary gas purchases will exacerbate the problem.
"Look, if you need gas, get it. But you don't need to be hoarding it right now. That's going to make it worse," he said on Wednesday.
Colonial Pipeline said late on Thursday it had restarted its entire pipeline system but it will take several days for shipments to return to normal.
It is still unclear how the fire started.
