The city is using vacuum trucks to remove the contents from the storm drain, but an unrecoverable sheen is visible in East Bay.
The building, owned by Acme Fuel Company, contained a fuel truck with a reported 300 gallons on board and at least five 55-gallon drums of diesel fuel and fuel additives. The fire is out, but instability of the structure has prevented teams from entering to determine whether or not the tanker and drums, some of which are bulging, have burst.
Ecology spill response crews were called to the three-alarm blaze at about 5 this morning. The building was fully engulfed when they arrived.
The cause of the fire has not been determined.
