Crews clean Brooke Co. diesel fuel spill

Updated: Sunday, February 23 2014, 08:10 PM EST



Crews have contained and cleaned up a diesel fuel spill that happened along Colliers Way in Weirton.


It happened on the property of Inland Industrial Services Group on Saturday afternoon.


According to Brooke County officials, neighbors first called in the accident because of fuel near a play area in a yard. When EMA personnel arrived on scene, they decided that it was bigger than they had originally thought.


“Basically, we stopped the material from going into the creek and we put some boom and pads down so the material wouldn’t go any further than where it had already been," said EMA Director Bob Bowler.

Fowler estimates 20 gallons of fuel was spilled.
