A fuel tanker serving a Cleveland airport spilled thousands of gallons of jet fuel near an airport hangar Tuesday.

According to Fox 8 Cleveland, a fuel tanker collided with another vehicle at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport at around 5:30 a.m. local time and started leaking fuel near a hanger.

The Cleveland Fire Department arrived on the scene and stopped the leak at around 6 a.m., but not before an estimated 5,500 gallons leaked out of the truck. There were no reported injuries and flights at the airport were not impacted.

Airport officials said the Aircraft Rescue and Firefighting (ARFF) unit, as well as environmental and hazmat crews, were also called to the scene. A private company was hired to clean the area after the spill.

“There was a fuel tanker involved in an accident near a hangar causing a fuel spill. ARFF, CFD, environmental and Hazmat are on scene investigating,” a Cleveland airport spokesperson said Tuesday. “No one was reported injured. No impact to flight operations.”

Fire department officials do not believe any of the fuel leaked into the sewers.
