    Arlington firefighters and emergency crews are on the site of an overturned tanker and fuel spill on Center Street near Interstate 30.

    Center street is closed completely both directions from Lamar to I-30. The rolled over tanker contained 7500 gallons of gasoline. 

    Firefighters tell NBC 5 it is leaking five gallons of gas per minute.  Firefighters are trying to get the leak to stop so they are putting down sand as a barrier to keep the fuel from leaking into a drainage ditch.

    Hazard crews are also responding to the scene. Stay with NBC 5 for the very latest.
