Police say an elderly man backed into the pump, which then tipped over onto another car.

As seen in the video, woman who was standing near that second car rushed to rescue two children who were in the backseat before the fire spread too much.

In all, two cars were completely burnt, and three others were damaged by the fire.

The gas pump and the canopy above the gas pump also were damaged by the fire, and the gas station is closed.

Police reported no one was injured.

Blocks were put up near drains so that any fuel that leaked wouldn't go into the water supply.

The accident remains under investigation, and no charges have been filed yet.
