NORTH PALM BEACH, Fla. — Authorities say a car crash caused a fire at a gas station in North Palm Beach on Sunday.

It happened at Pelican Car Wash and gas station along US 1 and PGA Boulevard around 4 p.m.

It's believed a single car crashed into the pump before catching fire.

One person was injured.

This is the second gas pump incident in just the past three days in Palm Beach County.

A gas pump caught fire Friday on North Main Street in Belle Glade.

Surveillance video from the gas station showed raging flames swallowing the vehicles and a column of thick black smoke shooting into the sky. It's unclear what caused that fire.
