The driver told police mechanical issues might have been to blame and caused the SUV to roll away from a parking spot and hit the pump, Dayton police Sgt. Creigee Coleman said. 

A small fire broke out but was quickly extinguished, Coleman said. 

The station is currently closed while investigators inspect the other pumps to see if they can be safely used. It is not known when the station might reopen.

The driver of the SUV will not be cited for the incident.
