Authorities are reporting that a gas tanker has crashed on Route 7 in Hoosick and is on fire. This is all too familiar for residents of the area, as this same thing happened nearly two years ago in March 2011 - and it happened in almost exactly the same spot on NY Route 7, just beyond the junction of NY Route 22. 

WTEN Channel 10 posted a photo of the crash to their Facebook page:

Word is that traffic is stopped in both directions on Route 7 while the fire department deals with the situation.

Oncer more information is available we will update this story with it. If you're in Hoosick / Hoosick Falls / Pittstown, let us know what you see.
