Montgomery County Fire and Rescue Services (MCFRS) were called to the scene of a fuel spill on the outer loop of I-495 between New Hampshire Avenue and University Boulevard at approximately 1:38pm on Tuesday afternoon, according to MCFRS Public Information Officer Pete Piringer. 

The driver of a truck with an 80 gallon fuel tank struck an object on the road, causing damage that led to the fuel tank leaking on the highway.

Ramps onto the outer loop of I-495 from New Hampshire Avenue are currently closed as hazmat crews continue to work.
