Stopping the Leak

Leak.RZThe Campbell Volunteer Fire Department was very busy this morning.  Three separate traffic incidents on Interstate 30 has demanded their services.

A truck ran over some road debris that caused a leak in the saddle tank.  Although the leak was minor it was causing traffic problems behind the truck.  Hunt County Homeland Security was at the scene. The driver controlled the leak with a tried and true method used by the Dutch boy that discovered a leak in the dike by using his finger to save the town.  A hazardous material clean up crew was en route from Dallas to make repairs and clean up residual fuel from the spill.

  1. I have stopped a lot of leaks on aircraft by using soap to seal seeps in fuel tanks. If it works on jets then it should on a truck since the fuel is similar.
