Firefighter John Lewis, Palmyra Fire Dept. told KHQA that they were dispatched to the Shell station in West Quincy for a fuel spill in one of the pumps Wednesday.
Staff said the gas had gotten out into the parking lot.
"From what we can tell, it was just from the one pump, and they said it was just a small quantity. The attendants hit the fuel shut off switch which was a smart thing to do, which killed the pumps. So it was just a very small amount to worry about," Lewis said.
Sawdust was put down to absorb the gasoline.
Palmyra Fire Department and the Marion County Sheriff were on scene as a precautionary measure.
Traffic was not disturbed by the spill.
