|Contacted By:||GRENDEL, ERIC (WASCO COUNTY)|
|Assistance Type:||INCIDENT RESPONSE|
|Details:||Today at 4:30 am the TA Express gas station caught on fire and is considered a total loss. TA Express is connected to the Biggs Junction Water System, as well as the Nu View Motel. I contacted Tony Singh (owner) as Harmon was unavailable. I discussed shutting off TA Express from the system for backflow purposes as the fire is being suppressed. Will update as more information arises.
I contacted the owner of the Nu View Motel (Shahil Patal) to notify him of the Do Not Drink. He will notify his customers about the advisory and will standby until further instruction or confirmation has occurred.
Was confirmed by the Owner Tony Singh that the water system did not lose pressure to the system, the fuel tanks were not damaged and there wasn't any petroleum or other chemical contamination to the ground that he is aware of. There is a little bit of runoff from the fire suppression, but nothing to be concerned about.
