Assistant Fire Marshal Capt. Sean McGaffin said the fire broke out in multiple places inside the Valero gas station on West Elizabeth Street just west of Shields Street about 5 a.m.
The station was closed for the night when the fire broke out, and a burglary alarm inside wasn't working, McGaffin said. He said firefighters and police were working to get access to the gas station's surveillance system.
