Gas pump spill closes intersection

May 20, 2013

A fuel spill from a Shell gas station closed the intersection at West 30th and North Illinois streets for about six hours Sunday afternoon and evening. An employee experienced problems while changing filters in a gasoline pump and as many as 500 gallons of fuel poured from the pump before it could be stopped. The Marion County Public Health Department and the Department of Public Works were called in to make sure fuel didn’t enter the sewer system.
