Fuel spill prompts emergency response at Greater Binghamton Airport

TOWN OF MAINE (WBNG) – Crews are working to clean-up a fuel spill at the Greater Binghamton Airport.

Crash, fire and rescue crews, along with first responders from the town of Maine well as staff from the Broome County Department of Emergency Services, responded to the scene.

Officials say they’re cleaning up approximately 30-70 gallons of fuel around the airplane.

Officials say there are safeguards in place so if fuel comes out of the airplane, it goes directly to the ground.

Passengers had to be evacuated and were eventually moved inside the terminal.

No fumes were inhaled and there were no injuries.

Airport officials tell us this will not have any impact on flights beginning Saturday.
