Seattle Fire wrestled a gas station blaze quickly under control Thursday morning after a car reportedly smashed into a pump near Terry and James.

According to Seattle Fire radio dispatches, the fire was reported just before 9:20 AM and was under control less than 10 minutes later as the car continued to smolder.

There do not appear to be any injuries associated with the crash and fire.

A Seattle Police collision investigation is also underway at the scene.

UPDATE: The crash reportedly involved a hit and run driver who left the scene westbound on James. Police are looking for a black, late 2000s Chevy Monte Carlo with “significant damage” to the passenger side.
