What would you do if an unexpected fire happened at your business, causing property damage, and possibly hurting employees? Last week, at Rapido Taxi and Limo Company, a fire broke out due to the explosion of three to five of the cars’ gas tanks.
According to Jeff Welz, co-director of North Hudson Regional Fire and Rescue, the fire broke out around 10 p.m. at the building in Union City. Two employees suffered second degree burns and were rushed to Palisades Medical Center. Firefighters were able to contain the blaze before it was able to spread to nearby residences.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation, but this event calls attention to the need for New Jersey business owners to be aware of all the risks, especially when autos and other valuable can create hazardous situations like the North Hudson fire.
