Tow vehicle fuel leak prompts short evacuation of Sac International Airport employees

No flights were reported delayed at Sacramento International Airport this morning when a luggage towing vehicle leaked fuel, requiring employees to temporarily vacate an area.

The leak occurred on a luggage tow, the motorized vehicle that shuttles luggage to and from airplanes. The leak caused the smell of gas in the baggage claim area in the basement of Terminal B.

Employees were evacuated and doors were opened to ventilate the area. Once the smell had left the area, employees were allowed back in.

Baggage screening operations were interrupted for a few minutes at about 8 a.m. No passengers were evacuated, an airport spokeswoman said.
