A morning gas spill brought a scare to those at the Valley Dairy gas station at corner of University and North Washington.

Grand Forks firefighters were called out at about 10 o'clock this morning after a valve failed on a semi tanker that was delivering fuel. Only about 20 gallons of gas were spilled but witnesses say the sight of gas shooting several feet was alarming. The driver of the semi quickly cleaned up the spill. The fire department says most of the gas on the ground was cleaned up by the time they arrived. No one was hurt.
