At 1518 hours on Tuesday, units from Jacksonville were dispatched for reports of a car accident at Jarrettsville Pike and Sweet Air Road. Crews arrived to find a two car accident in which one vehicle had a ruptured gas tank. Personnel found the contents of a full tank of gasoline leaking onto the roadway and into a storm drain South of the scene. Crews worked quickly to contain the significant amount of gas leaking onto the street. The roadway was shut down to ensure safety of the crews working at the scene while Engine 473 requested the Haz-Mat units from Station 14 and the Maryland Department of the Environment to respond to the location due to the amount of liquid spilled. Crews from Stations 47, 38, and 14 worked with members of MDE for approximately two hours to ensure that the hazard was mitigated from the street and the storm drain. Units cleared at approximately 1740 hours.
