Tanker truck spill

Since we were in the area, we stopped to see how clean-up efforts were going at the scene of a fuel tanker that lost its load Thursday.

Despite a stream a few feet away, no fuel got into it.

Everytime the loader hauled away more contaminated dirt to the pile, the smell of fuel grew stronger.

The dirt will likely go to a landfill, the EPA says. Clean-up on county road 77 near 285 in Park County will be done in a few days.

Two pics are from still pictures the EPA had. The fuel tanker was towed away.
