Less than 100 gallons leaked from a 1,000-gallon tank into a mountain stream in Old Fort Sunday afternoon, according to Emergency Management Director Terry Young.

Young said around 3 p.m. Sunday, emergency crews were called out to Eric and Sylvia’s Old Fort Stop on Catawba Avenue in Old Fort after a rusty tank was discovered leaking kerosene into a stream that feeds into the Catawba River. Young said the store was closed at the time and a neighbor called emergency officials about the leak.
