Hazardous Materials Incident

At approximately 3:51 this morning, units responded to the intersection of Terminal Road and Fairfax County Parkway for a reported Hazardous Materials (Haz Mat) incident.

Units arrived on scene and found a fully loaded fuel tank trailer that had disconnected from the tractor. No product was leaking from the tank. A unified command was established with members from fire and rescue, Police, VDOT, the transportation company, and representatives from the tank farm.

Haz Mat crews bonded and grounded all vehicles involved and proceeded to off load 8,470 gallons of gasoline to a new fuel tank trailer. That task was safely completed without incident a little after 7 a.m.

There were no firefighter or civilian injuries.
