Officials from the State Fire Marshal's Office were at the scene of the Sisolack Garage on Monday morning.
They haven't released an official cause of the fire that started on March 8th.
The fire finally went out Sunday morning, and Talbott Road has since been reopened.
A fire that broke out in Belington on March 8th is finally out.
A tank filled with liquid propane had been burning since then, and crews had to stay on scene for days. On Thursday, officials decided to close Talbott Road because they feared a failure of the piping on the truck could have caused an explosion.
The road is back open.
A fire at a service station in Belington forced emergency crews to close part of Talbott Road, and some of the residents to evacuate on Thursday. Firefighters said they still don't know how long this fire will be burning.
Neighbors told 5 News they're happy that emergency crews have kept such a close watch on the fire that started last Friday morning, but they're also worried for everyone's safety.
It all started around 7:00 a.m. Friday morning, when the owner heard some sort of explosion.
The Southern States truck that was inside was still burning one week later.
Crews have to keep it cool because if they don't, the propane inside could explode.
Two unmanned hoses are constantly pointing at the truck to keep it cool.
Officials decided to close Talbott Road from the Deerbrooke Estates to the Talbott Community Building because they fear a failure of the piping on the truck could lead to an explosion.
The road will be closed until the fire is out, and families in two homes chose to evacuate the area.
Neighbors said they'd rather have the road closed and make sure everyone's safe, rather than an explosion hurt anyone.
"It really hasn't been an inconvenience for me, but it's a real concern. I've known Johnny (the owner) all my life, too, and he's lived around here and we grew up together, so it's been hard, but we're trying to help each other out," said Pam Winans, a resident of Talbott Road.
Belington's fire chief, Phil Hart, said no one is in danger right now, and they closed the road simply as a precaution.
They're classifying this fire as a controlled hazard right now, but said if the truck would explode it would be uncontrolled, and that's why they got the families out of their homes and closed the road.
"We continue doing the operations and tactics that we've been told to do, and with the information we have available, that's why the decision was made because we did not want to get anyone hurt or killed," said Chief Phil Hart.
