Fire Near Downtown Mineola

This appears to be a fire in one of the fuel storage tanks across the railroad tracks from the gazebo in downtown Mineola.

More information will follow as we receive it.

Update:

It appears that it was not the large tanks that caught fire. As best we could see, it is the building to the east of those tanks that was on fire. The large tanks look to be in tact from this photo.

Fire crews appear to have the fire under control at Pearce Petroleum and the large tanks appear in tact.

 

Update:

This is what remains of the Pearce Petroleum building in Mineola after Sunday's fire.
