Errant Sprinkler Spews Chemical Foam
Sprinkler systems above gas station tanks are set to go off and douse the area with chemical foam in case of a fire, but the system at the Mobil Gas Station at 112-01 Beach Channel Drive in Rockaway Park went off without a fire and without warning on Wednesday morning, dousing several vehicles, including a motorcycle and a police car. Pictured, firefighters check out the scene to make sure that there was no fire involved. A police car that was sitting near the pumps when the sprinkler went off is covered with the foam.
