Authorities working to clean gasoline spill in D'Iberville

D'IBERVILLE, MS (WLOX) -

Authorities are on the scene of a gasoline spill at the Harrison County Barn on Rodriguez Street and Doris Deno Avenue in D'Iberville. According to D'Iberville Fire Chief Gerald Smith the spill occurred around 2 Friday afternoon. Smith said a gas company over-filled the county's underground fuel storage tanks, which provide gas to county vehicles.

That gasoline ended up on the parking lot. It also spilled onto part of Doris Deno Avenue and some of it got into a storm drain. Smith said an estimated 100 to 110 gallons of gas spilled out. US Environmental out of Mobile, AL is headed to the scene to clean up the gas.

Vehicles that were parked in the impacted area have been moved. Part of Doris Deno Avenue is closed while clean-up is underway. Everything is expected to be cleaned up in about 2 to 3 hours.

"Were not sure how much gas is in the storm drain,” said Smith.

US Environmental will be cleaning that storm drain to get all gas out. WLOX will update this story as more information becomes available.
