Diesel spills into sewer after accident in Regina
About 180 litres spill, 40 went into sewer, fire department says
Some spilled diesel fuel ended up in the Regina sewer system Thursday after a fork lift punctured a tank of fuel on a truck.
It happened about 10 a.m. in the parking lot of a Roofmart store on the 600 block of Dewdney Avenue.
The fire department's hazardous materials unit raced to a scene to stop the fuel from pouring out and to start the cleanup.
It turns out 180 litres — roughly enough to fill a bathtub — were spilled.
About 40 litres went down a drain into the storm sewer.
Environmental crews have been called in to clean up the scene.
