Emergency personnel and hazmat crews responded to New York City’s John F. Kennedy Airport Thursday morning after a tanker truck spilled thousands of gallons of jet fuel.
The tanker truck, carrying 10,000 gallons of fuel, overturned in a cargo area near one of the airport’s runways at 10:40 a.m. local time.
According to reports, the incident caused approximately 4,000 gallons of fuel to spill onto the tarmac.
It’s unclear what caused the truck to overturn.
No injuries have been reported.
“The spill has been covered in foam to prevent further spreading. Hazmat units are actively working to determine the optimal method for offloading the remaining fuel from the truck,” Rawsalerts noted.
