Tri-staters who traveled down Highway 41 last night, may have seen firetrucks at the Flying J.
A slight scare  at the gas station was cleared by firefighters after faulty wiring was discovered.
Employees at the Flying J on Highway 41 say they heard a loud humming sound coming from a circuit breaker.
This was around 10:00pm last night.
As a precaution, the employees told everyone to get out of the store and turned off all of the gas pumps.
According to Haubstadt firefighters, customers were never in any danger, and there was no risk of fire at the gas pumps.
Business quickly resumed and an electrician and Vectren were called in to fix faulty breaker.
