(BEDFORD) - A problem with fueling systems at a Circle K gas station at 1428 16th St. caused a gasoline leak in the area Friday.

Acting Bedford Fire Department Chief DeWayne Turpen says firefighters discovered gas had leaked into the storm drains causing the odor in the area of 17th and K street, near the Bedford Middle School to downtown Bedford as well as Fairground Lane to 20th Street.

Working with Bedford City Utilities, firefighters and crews opened manhole covers and were able to trace the gas leak to Circle K. They were able to determine the leak was coming from the fueling systems at Circle K to the storm drains.

Circle K brought in a company Saturday to empty their tanks and soak up the liquids from the storm drains.
