UPDATE: Fire Crews Extinguish Mecosta Co. Gas Station Fire

Fire crews quickly arrived to the Sunoco gas station in Barryton for reports of a fire and quickly put out the flames.  

They were able to clean up the scene and Sunoco has since reopened.  

The fire started in the ceiling. It was confined to a back storage room inside the building.  There is a small amount of smoke damage.  

People who were inside when the fire started were able to get out safely.  

Fire crews were not concerned about the gas pumps because the fire was far enough away from them.  

“It was a relief to see it was just contained in the back corner and we didn’t have a lot of product or anything back there so the damage it looks like is minimal,” owner Jerry Williams said.
