Fire and HAZMAT crews in Cleveland are addressing a fuel spill at the Cleveland Hopkins International Airport on Tuesday morning.
Over 5,500 gallons of jet fuel was spilled after a fuel tanker collided with another vehicle near several aircraft hangars, according to News 5 Cleveland.
The spill did not appear to impact flight operations and has since been stopped.
The accident took place at a facility near the United Airlines-owned portion of the airport.
