Hoover Police and Fire Departments working to contain I-65 fuel spill

HOOVER, Ala. (WIAT) — Update: I-65 is reopen in the southbound direction near exit 250 in Hoover.

Original: Hoover Police and Fire Departments are currently on the scene of a fuel spill on I-65 South before I-459, according to Lt. Keith Czeskleba of the Hoover Police. The spill was reportedly caused by a mechanical issue on a tractor-trailer traveling down I-65 South. The outside lane is still open, but at this time the three inside lanes are closed.

About 100 gallons of diesel fuel have spilled at this time by the department’s estimation.

WIAT will bring you more details as they emerge.
