The incident occurred at Wilson Gas and Bulk Plant.
By late in the afternoon a building fire had been put out, but four tanks each holding about 2,000 gallons of gasoline continued to burn, according to Ray Bowman, a spokesman for the state Division of Emergency Management.
An evacuation of an area within a 4,000 feet radius of the plant was directed after the fire started.
The plant stores gasoline, oil and toluene.
