Ansell Fuel Tank

Excessive rain in the Wiregrass caused a 30,000 gallon gas tank to literally float out of the ground.

According to officials, the fuel tank was old and completely pumped dry.

Luckily, there was no damage to surrounding buildings and the gas leak did not pose a threat to anyone.

The area has been blocked off until the Alabama Department of Environmental Management can remove the tank and the contaminated ground surrounding it.
