KEY WEST, FLA. (WSVN) - Monroe County’s Aircraft Rescue and Firefighting unit responded to a call about a jet fuel leak at a Key West airport, Tuesday.

According to officials, a truck rolled over and spilled gallons of jet fuel at the Key West International Airport, just before 7 p.m.

About 4,000 gallons of fuel were believed to have been on board, although the amount of fuel leaked remains unknown.
