Charlie Lake firefighers were called out to respond to a leaking transport truck on Tuesday afternoon.

Firefighters responded just before 1 p.m. to a transport B-Train leaking propane at the Mile 54 weigh scales by Highway 97 and Highway 29, according to a news release. The leak was found coming from piping on the bottom side of the trailer, and liquid fill/drain pipe.

Firefighters contained the area and blocked access to the scales and roadway parallel to the scale office. Once the unit was removed to a new area and flagged, firefighters turned the unit back over to the company owner to await for a specialist to arrive. 

Seven firefighters responded.
