Crews with Myrtle Beach Fire Rescue clean small gas spill on Mr. Joe White Avenue and Robert Grissom Parkway Thursday after equipment falls from truck.

Gas spilled onto the roadway Thursday morning when a piece of construction equipment fell from a truck, causing a lane of traffic to close for part of the morning while crews worked to clean it up.

Myrtle Beach Fire Department crews were called out about 10:30 a.m. to the busy intersection at Mr. Joe White Avenue and Robert Grissom Parkway and quickly shut down a portion of Mr. Joe White eastbound while they worked to clean up a small spill near a storm drain.

Myrtle Beach police were also on scene aiding with traffic while crews worked. Department of Health and Environmental Control have been called to the scene to ensure there were no impacts from the leak, according to Lt. Vince Bettinazzi with MBFD.
