Two workers for the Mississippi Department of Transportation were injured in a gas station fire Monday morning.

An MDOT spokesperson said a mowing crew from the Starkville Maintenance Office was fueling a tractor at a local gas station when a fire broke out.

One MDOT employee was injured in the fire and was airlifted to a hospital in Jackson. A second employee was injured while assisting the first employee and is being treated locally.
