Upon arrival crews confirmed that approximately 50 gallons of gasoline had discharged into a large tunnel. Due to the extreme hazardous condition in a confined space and the threat of a possible ignition of the vapors, the
building was evacuated and firefighters began to ventilate the area. Mercury
Marine contacted a remediation company who arrived on the scene to mitigate the
spill.  Crews remained on the scene for several hours until the conditions inside the plant were no longer hazardous. The remediation company removed and cleaned
the product until there were no flammable vapors or liquids detectable. There were no injuries reported.
