AFD investigates improper gasoline handling

Posted: Updated:

Amarillo, TX - An investigation is underway into what could have become an explosive situation in east Amarillo.

Three thousand gallons of gasoline from an underground storage tank at 10th and Grand was siphoned into a truck to be transported across state lines.

However, the Amarillo Fire Marshal says the gas was improperly stored in plastic tubs which could have quickly deteriorated.

Traffic was shut down along Grand between 10th and 11th while crews worked to put the gas into proper containers.

The Fire Marshal is looking into whether charges should be filed in this case.
