ROCKVILLE CENTRE, N.Y. (AP) — Authorities say that several roads remain closed but that power is being restored around where a gasoline tanker crashed and burst into flames on New York’s Long Island. The tanker lost control, crashed into a vacant building and burst into flames early Wednesday. The truck’s driver and three firefighters who responded were injured. The cause is being investigated. Video posted to social media showed thick smoke billowing from the former furniture showroom in Rockville Centre. That’s about 30 miles east of New York City. Officials say that fuel spilled into the sewer system and creeks but that there is no threat to the environment.
