A large fire at gas station near the outlet mall in Jeffersonville was contained after flames were seen shooting out of a truck.

The Fayette County Sheriff's office said local fire departments were able to contain the flames at the Shell gas station on US-35. Fire officials said the fire started under the hood of a semi truck, and by the time the driver got out to get his fire extinguisher, it was already too big.

ABC 6/FOX 28 was alerted of the fire by viewer Amy Elizabeth. She shared video posted to Facebook by Judy Hawkes-Helsel.

One set of gas tanks was put out of service, but the Shell station is still open and they say the other gas pumps are still operable.

No injuries were reported.
