A messy situation on Casper's east side could have been a lot worse.

Casper Fire EMS says sometime Friday evening (December 14th), crews were called out to the Flying J on Wyoming Boulevard for a reported fuel spill.

It turned out the saddle tank on a parked semi-trailer, had been punctured by another passing tractor trailer.

About 100 gallons of diesel fuel spilled on the ground, and cleanup crews from the Casper Public Works Streets Division were able to contain the fuel, before it reached the storm drains.

Further clean-up efforts have been turned over to Flying J, who will make the task available to contractors.
