The Wantagh Fire Department extinguished a car fire that shut down Sunrise Highway Tuesday.
The fire, which took place at 5:51 p.m., happened on the eastbound side of Sunrise Highway near Brookside Avenue.
The Nassau County Fire Marshal was called due to the gas tank that leaked into the storm drain. Sunrise Highway was closed for about at 45 minutes while responders secured the scene.
Nobody was injured.
