Petrol spilled down a “large stretch” of road in West Auckland was causing cars to slip and slide on Tuesday morning.
The spill was in Central Park Drive, Henderson, alongside the Trusts Arena.
Northern fire communications shift manager Jaron Phillips said fire crews were at the scene at 7.30am, and a specialised truck was en route with “absorbent” to mop up the petrol.
“Cars are slipping on a large stretch of road,” he said.
Police and Auckland Council had been advised of the incident.
More to come.
