Propane tank flips causing hazardous material spill

MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) – A hazardous material spill caught the attention of Mobile Fire-Rescue on Wednesday.

The spill took place on the west I-65 service road after a propane tank flipped onto its top. The accident took place near Briggs Equipment on the beltline.

According to Steve Huffman of Mobile Fire-Rescue, the brakes failed on the truck transporting the propane.

Because the tanked rolled onto its top, reponders were forced to wait until all the contents vent out of the tank. Air quality checks were performed and no immediate threats or injuries were reported.
