Auburn Fire Rescue Department responded at 11:30 pm Thursday to 782 Washington Street, the BJ’s Gas Station, for a report of a 100 gallon gasoline fuel spill.
AFRD crews on scene found gasoline flowing out of the gas station onto Washington Street and Sibley Street. The gasoline spill also flowed into two storm drains. Fire crews contained the spill from flowing completely down Sibley Street.
The spill was caused by a gasoline tanker truck overfilling the gas stations’s underground gasoline storage tanks. The Auburn Water District, Mass DOT, and DEP were notified of the event. An environmental cleanup company was called to the scene to clean up the HAZMAT.
