GAS STATION SPILL CLEANED UP

Frewsburg firefighters and the Chautauqua County Hazardous Materials Team cleaned up a large diesel fuel spill at the Kwik Fill station Friday.

Frewsburg Fire Chief Tom Moore said a tractor-trailer pulled into the parking lot and ran over the plate cover to an underground gasoline storage tank.

"The plate came up and ruptured the truck's diesel fuel tank, causing it to leak. We put buckets under the truck to keep it from spilling onto the ground, then used some absorbent material to prevent it from going into the drain system," Moore said.

One of two 90-gallon tanks was ruptured in the 5 a.m. accident.
