Fire Crews Respond To Fuel Spill (Photo) - 03/31/24

Eugene, OR.  Eugene Springfield Fire is on scene of a fuel spill at the Fred Meyer fuel depot at 60 Division Avenue in Eugene.  Crews are mitigating the spill which originally was believed to have occurred as a result of a vehicle fuel tank that had been drilled for fuel theft.  Further investigation determined the fueling hose had become disconnected from the fuel tank. The owner was unaware that the malfunction existed and a large volume fuel spilled.  The Eugene Springfield Fire regional hazardous materials team is working with Fred Meyer staff to mitigate the spill.  Fortunately modern fuel facilities are able to contain spills within the facility protecting the storm runoff systems and regional treatment facilities.  Crews are verifying all systems are opening properly and there is no contamination within the storm water system.  *updated to include findings upon further investigation.
