A man in Nevada is accused of running a homemade gas station in a backyard.
Las Vegas Fire and Rescue posted images of a very dangerous and completely illegal DIY gas station that firefighters discovered on Tuesday.
The photos (reposted here in this blog post) show two yellow tanks in the corner of a walled yard, and a gas pump nozzle on the end of the hose.
The hose was long enough to reach from the yard to the street for “possible curbside fill ups,” the Las Vegas Fire and Rescue department posted online.
“This is not only illegal in the city, it is a hazard to neighbors (and) first responders who may respond there for an emergency, like a fire,” said the department.
Police say that in addition to the fire hazard, it's also probably tied to credit card fraud.
