The Homer and Cortland Fire Departments responded to a fuel spill at the Express Mart gas station in Homer this morning. Police say a man intentionally dumped fuel into a storm drain.
Around 1:15 this morning, police and firefighters responded to the gas station on the corner of Route 90 and Route 281.

The Cortland Hazmat team along with the DEC spill Response Team and DEC Environmental officers responded.
The driver is facing charges, no one was injured and there is no threat to local drinking water.
