Diesel Fuel Spill at Manchester’s Kwik Star

A diesel fuel spill happened at a Manchester convenience store on Monday morning.

The Manchester Fire Department says they were called out to Kwik Star along West Main Street shortly before 10:30 am. A spill was reported at the diesel fuel pumps used by semis and other diesel vehicles.

Manchester Police and Kwik Star staff assisted.

Fire Chief Mike Ryan says Kwik Star staff responded correctly by calling the fire department and using some of their oil-dry absorbent to keep the diesel fuel from entering a nearby stormwater intake.

It’s not known what caused the fuel spill.

Ryan says the diesel fuel pumps were blocked for a short time while the spill was cleaned up. The store and other gas pumps remained operational.
