BILLINGS -

According to the Billings Fire Department, a tanker carrying molasses sprang a leak on King Ave. West, between 19th Street West and the I-90 interchange. BFD says the tanker was notified and stopped from traveling any further until the leak is fixed.

The Billings Fire Department is spraying the lanes and the Montana Department of Transportation is attempting to soak up the spill by spreading sand. Traffic is still very congested in this area.
