LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Las Vegas firefighters discovered a homemade gas station at a home while responding to a call on Tuesday.

The department says not only are they illegal, but homemade gas stations are dangerous for neighbors in the area.

The makeshift gas station was in a Las Vegas backyard, though authorities did not share specific location details.

Crews say the hose was long enough to reach the street for possible curbside fill ups.

Firefighters say to call police at 3-1-1 if you see something similar in a neighborhood near you.
