In response to reports that the Jojava Oil Pump is at the center of a fire that’s destroyed a lawn mowing equipment, The Hill reported Monday that the company is trying to figure out how much oil it’s pumping and how much it can sell to homeowners who have been complaining about their lawn mowers getting burned by the fumes.
Jojavas own website states that the “products we use to mow our lawns are made from a combination of jojoba, cedar, coconut, cotton, and cottonseed oil.”
The Hill says that jojavases website also includes a disclaimer stating that jojamas oil can cause a person’s heart to pump.
“Our team is in the process of working with the city to determine what will be the next step,” a Jojavalast website says.
“We hope to be back in business as soon as possible.”
According to a spokesperson for Jojavea, the company has not yet determined how much jojava oil is being pumped out of its pump equipment.
“Jojavasea will continue to evaluate our options,” the spokesperson said.
“The pump will remain offline until we receive more information.”
According the Hill, the fire began at a Jojamas pump at the same time as a fire broke out at another Jojavidas pump in the same neighborhood.
In both incidents, the jojaveas oil was reported to be “too much to handle.”
“The jojawas oil in this incident appears to be too much for our pumps,” the Hill says.
But the Jojamass oil pump in New Jersey, which is also owned by Jojaba, said it was not the source of the fire.
“There is no jojavan oil source in New Jerseys fire,” the company said in a statement.
“It was a gas pump fire.”
A spokesperson for the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection told The Hill that they have been in contact with Jojavanas about the fire and have sent a team to investigate.
But there are no plans to send a team back to investigate the fire, the spokesperson told The Huffington Post.
The Hill also reports that Jojaws website is currently offline.
The company said that it was working with fire investigators to find out how to “remove and dispose of the oil.”
But the spokesperson also said that “we are in the early stages of this investigation.”
“We will continue our normal operations as usual,” the statement from Jojas said.
In a statement, Jojba said that the fire at its New Jersey pump is being investigated by the New York Fire Department.
“At this time we are unable to provide further information about the cause of the blaze, but are taking this matter very seriously,” the firm said.
