The Queensland Fire and Emergency Services report the woman was encapsulated, so firefighters removed the door to get to the patient.

"They started doing that 7.15am, took two minutes to get to the patient," a QFES spokesman said.

"Once they made entry they put patient in the hands of ambulance officers.

"At 7.20am the patient was loaded into an Ambulance and taken to Yeppoon Hospital."

The Queensland Ambulance Service said the woman suffered neck pain upon initial assessment.

Three QFES have since left scene after checking for diesel and fuel leaks, and making the area safe.
