FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) - Hazmat crews are working to clean up at least 1,700 gallons of diesel fuel that spilled from a locomotive in Fort Collins.

Patrick Love, a spokesman for Poudre Fire Authority, tells The Coloradoan (https://goo.gl/GkEzTE ) that Tuesday evening’s spill came from a 2,200-gallon tank the train was carrying. He says the spill did not endanger nearby residents or affect traffic.

Great Western Railway owns the locomotive and worked with crews on the cleanup. It’s unclear how the fuel spilled.
