FAIRBANKS, Alaska (AP) - The state of Alaska says a tanker truck spilled about 2,500 gallons of diesel fuel on the Dalton Highway north of the Brooks Range.

The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reports (https://is.gd/QVT6mL ) that the state Department of Environmental Conservation said Tuesday the northbound NANA Oilfield Services truck left the road and rolled over Saturday afternoon about 110 miles south of Deadhorse.

The truck was carrying about 9,700 gallons.

The state says the spill reached a small stream but it has gotten no reports of affected wildlife. Cleanup is underway.

The driver was treated at a Fairbanks hospital and released.
