It took three days to get an answer but Fox 26 news and The Factor have confirmed a diesel fuel leak at a Shell facility near the Medical Center area.

The company says an underground generator sprung a leak Sunday night at the Shell Information Center.

It’s located in the 1500 block of Old Spanish Trail Road.

At least 1,700 gallons of diesel fuel escaped into the ground.

However, Shell spokesperson Kayla Macke says the site has been contained.

She says clean up is underway now and there will be no impact on the community.

Macke also says all appropriate environmental agencies have been notified about the spill.
