Mansfield gas station fire:
Injured employee recovering

Auto mechanic Ron Stanovitch continues what will be a long recovery after suffering severe burns in a fire that destroyed a popular gas station where he worked in Mansfield, Massachusetts. Authorities say a welding accident led to the fire.

“I couldn’t believe it, Mike’s always been busy down there,’ said Tommy Glavin, a customer. “[I] can’t believe what happened.”

Loyal customers of Canaan Fuels in Mansfield are still in disbelief days after fire burned out of control at the gas station.

“It’s really heartbreaking to see,” said Debby McMaster, who lives across the street from the gas station.

McMaster said her phone was bombarded with texts last Wednesday as news of the fire began to spread.

In the meantime, people like Debby are doing what they can to support both Stanovitch as well as the gas station owner.

“I found out about a meal train that Ron’s family is putting together,” McMaster said. “And I think a lot of us in town are going to be on board with that.”

Stanovitch’s niece posted to a community Facebook page:

“My family thanks Canaan Fuel employees for your heroic acts, the quick response from our public safety and the continued thoughts, prayers and contributions from the community.” 

She went on to say that Stanovitch underwent surgery and will be sedated for several months.

A GoFundMe has been started to help benefit Stanovitch and his family as he continues his recovery.
