ROMULUS, Mich. (AP) — Crews at Detroit Metropolitan Airport are working to repair a leak at an airport fuel farm.

The airport in the Detroit suburb of Romulus says the leak caused minor delays Thursday at the north terminal after contractors discovered the problem.

Airport spokesman Mike Conway says there were no delays Friday morning related to the leak as crews worked to isolate the leak and repair the problem. He says the airport’s fueling system is working and airlines are using the fueling system as usual.

Conway says crews collected about 2,000 gallons of fuel and water from the ground at the fuel farm, but it wasn’t known how much fuel leaked.

Officials say the leak didn’t pose a threat to health or the environment. The leak has been reported to environmental regulators.
