SUFFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — The Suffolk Fire Marshal’s Office is investigating a fuel spill in the Nansemond Gardens neighborhood.
Around 5:15 p.m. Thursday, emergency communications got a call about a gas odor near the Public Utilities Pump Station, according to Diana Klink with the city of Suffolk.
A contractor was at the scene, removing contaminated material from nearby storm drains. Klink said the material was confined to the sewer system.
No residences were affected by the spill, but residents in the 400 block of Williams Road were notified and asked to “shelter in place.”
A portion of Williams Road remains closed and is expected to remain closed for the next several hours as the clean-up continues.
No further information has been released.
