BENNINGTON, Neb. (AP) - Crews have contained a gasoline spill estimated at 1,000 gallons from a truck filling up a tank at a convenience store in the northwest Omaha suburb of Bennington.

The spill occurred about 1:30 a.m. Wednesday. Omaha, Irvington and Bennington firefighters worked for hours to contain the spill. The store was closed at the time.

The gas drained into a storm sewer. No injuries or evacuations have been reported.

Bennington Assistant Fire Chief Jeff Carlsen says a strong odor of gasoline will remain in the area Wednesday. Bennington Fire Chief Bob Raymond says remediation efforts will include surface cleanup and a flushing of the storm sewer.
