Dramatic video has emerged of the moments just after a fire started on a busy Meath filling station forecourt.
The incident happened at approximately 9.40pm at Applegreen's busy service station at Navan Retail Park. Flames could be seen raging close to one of the six double fuel pumps located in the station.
It's believed that a car caught fire, there are no reports on any injuries

One employee tried in vain to put out the flames with a fire extinguisher but was beaten back by the flames. In another clip sent to the Meath Chronicle by Kim S and Giedrius K, fire crews are soon on the scene and begin to extinguish the flames. 

Applegreen's new service station in the Navan Retail Park opened last January, creating 50 new jobs and is Applegreen's second service station in Navan, with one already located on the Kentstown Road. The new service station is located on the Northern Link Road which connects north Navan to the M3 motorway and caters for over 34,000 cars every day.

Services at the new 24-hour Applegreen station include; Shop, Bakewell Café, Burger King (including drive through), Subway, barista coffee, self-service and automated carwash, seating area for 110 and children’s play area.
