FLORENCE, AL (WAFF) - Quick work from several fire departments out in the Shoals may have prevented a disaster.

A fuel truck driver stopped at a Shell Station on Highway 20 and went inside. When he came back out, his tanker truck was engulfed in flames.

Workers had trouble getting the gas lines shut off.

Fortunately, fire fighters were able to get the scene under control before the fire could affect the gas pumps.

A couple of nozzles were destroyed, but no one was hurt.
