GILBERT, AZ — Firefighters had their hands full battling a fuel tanker fire in Gilbert Wednesday night.

The fire broke out at a construction site near Recker and Williams Field roads around 7:15 p.m.

Officials say the 400-gallon diesel was sitting in middle of construction site, so it was not a risk of burning anything else.

Commuters were told to avoid the area while ADEQ tests the air quality in the area.

There are no injuries to report at this time.
