RIDGEFIELD \u2014 Fire Department Chief Jerry Myers said Friday that 71 gallons of gasoline spilled at the Valero gas station on the corner of Route 7 and Danbury Road early Friday. Myers said the spill occurred about 30 minutes after Standard Oil began filling up the station\u2019s tanks at around 3 a.m. A neighboring business alerted the fire department, after they smelled gasoline, around 7:30 a.m. \u201cWe traced the spill back to Valero and they provided us with the info. It was an oversight not calling us. A spill means you need to call us \u2014 that\u2019s a rule,\u201d Myers said. The gas did not spill into the Little Pond in the Norwalk River watershed, which sits just south of the property. \u201cNone of the gasoline has reached the pond it\u2019s all boomed up,\u201d Myers said. \u201c[It] does not look like it reached the pond.\u201d Authorities from the state\u2019s Department of Energy and Environmental Protection took control of the scene around the same time the Fire Department arrived, Myers said. McVac Environmental, a New Haven-based environmental remediation company, is performing work at the site.
