Rumble - This shocking footage has emerged from China of a motorbike bursting into flames at a petrol station. The video, filmed in Jiujiang, Jiangxi Province on June 6, shows the vehicle catching fire while the driver fills it up with petrol.

Fortunately, the employees of the gas station were quick to react and put the fire out with their specialized fire extinguishers.

Fires at gas stations may be the high risk/low frequency events, but they happen more often than you and I would like. For vehicle fire, gas stations are equipped with manual or automated fire extinguishing systems, which are activated remotely. A carbon dioxide fire extinguisher and AFFF (Aqueous Film-Forming) foam are the best methods to extinguish a gasoline fire.
