Tampa hazmat crews stop propane leak

TAMPA — Hazardous materials crews stopped a propane leak from a rail car Wednesday afternoon, according to Tampa Fire Rescue.

The leaking rail car was parked in a yard at 504 N 34th St., one block south of the Lee Roy Selmon Expressway and one block north of McKay Bay.

Tampa Fire Rescue said that at 4:49 p.m., crews were able to contain the leak so the propane could be off-loaded to another tank. No injuries were reported.
