Fuel leak cleaned up at Dulles International Airport

A fuel leak at Dulles International Airport is cleaned up Friday.

Around 10:45 a.m., 50 gallons of fuel leaked onto the tarmac during a test of the airport’s underground fuel system.

Airport fire teams quickly closed off six gates in the C and D concourses to clean up the spill. The gates have since reopened.

Earlier, the Airport Authority advised fliers to check with their airline to see if their flight was delayed.
