Large diesel spill

Police are investigating after a large amount of diesel was spilled in a parking lot in Kelowna.

Firefighters responded to the parking lot near 750 McCurdy Road on Sunday afternoon and found diesel pooled.

Platoon Capt. John Kelly said firefighters on scene figured there was about 200 litres spilled.

“There was probably some product still left in the tanks so we used a bunch of our absorbent material to soak it up,” said Kelly.

It’s believed that someone was allegedly stealing fuel from the tanks of transport trucks, but that has not yet been confirmed.

"The fuel originated from a large delivery truck. RCMP were notified and requested to the scene as the fuel tanks of a delivery truck appeared to be damaged," said Kelly.

Ministry of the Environment and City of Kelowna utility crew were called and after firefighters cleaned up the spill, it was deemed not hazardous.
