According to KTVL and KDRV, the incident occurred around 10 p.m. PDT at a Pacific Pride station on South Central Avenue in downtown Medford.

“Working a three-alarm fuel fire at Boyd and S. Central,” the Medford Fire Department wrote in a Facebook post shortly after 10:30 p.m. “Please stay away from the area as we work to contain this fire.”

About an hour later, the department said crews were still working to extinguish the blaze.

“In addition to the fire, we are working to contain the runoff from the fuel silos and have called in a heavy foam unit from the airport,” the department wrote in a separate post.

Authorities are asking anyone within a half-mile radius to evacuate, KTVL and KDRV reported. Pacific Power also tweeted that it has “de-energized service” to the area as a safety measure.

Officials continue to investigate what caused the fire. It wasn’t immediately clear whether anyone was injured.
