About 40 gallons of diesel fuel spilled in the parking lot of JJ’s Market in Arroyo Grande on Thursday morning.
The incident happened about 6:30 a.m. in the 2700 block of Halcyon Road, when the driver of a tractor-trailer reported that he hit a curb and knocked off the bottom fuel drain valve, causing the spill, according to the California Highway Patrol. Some of the fuel did go into a drain, the CHP said.
Cal Fire firefighters were on scene working to stop the spread of the spill and conduct environmental cleanup, Cal Fire said. By about 8:20 a.m., Cal Fire said their firefighters were being released from the scene and the incident was being turned over to County Environmental Health.
