Fuel spill clears D.C. police station
A District police station in Northwest was temporarily evacuated Wednesday morning after a fuel spill sent fumes into the station, officials said.
Fire officials responded to a fuel leak about 8:30 a.m. at the gas pumps of the Second District police station in the 3300 block of Idaho Ave. NW. Some odor from the gas got into the ventilation system of the building, said D.C. Fire/EMS spokesman Pete Piringer. The building was temporarily cleared as hazmat officials ventilated with fans and open air, Piringer said.
There was no fire and no one was injured. The police station serves residents living in Wards 2 and 3 and has its own fuel tanks for the police vehicles assigned to the station, police said.
