   At 8:01 a . m . , Tuesday , October 4 , 2022 , the Loudoun County Emergency Communications Center dispatched fire and rescue units , to include the Loudoun County Fire and Rescue ( LCFR ) Hazardous Materials Team , to a report of oil or fuel floating in the creek near South King Street in Leesburg .  
   Fire and rescue crews arrived on the scene and confirmed that fuel was floating in the waterway . Firefighters quickly began deploying hazmat containment booms in the waterways at multiple locations . The f......uel had traveled downstream from King Street to Plaza Street and was found in both the Town Branch and the Tuscarora Creek waterways . Once the fuel was contained , fire and rescue crews began searching for the source of the fuel .  
   It was quickly determined the leaking fuel was caused by the overfilling of a tank for a backup generator at Inova Loudoun Hospital’s Cornwall campus . The spilled fuel travelled from this location to the creek through storm drains .  
   Inova staff is working with an environmental cleaning contractor , the Department of Environmental Quality , the Town of Leesburg , and the LCFR Fire Marshal’s Office to mitigate any damage caused by this incident . The incident scene has been turned over to Inova as they monitor the clean - up process . This process could take several days to complete . Residents in the immediate area may notice a residual odor or petroleum sheen on waterways as the cleanup continues . The source of the leak has been contained and there is no ongoing public threat .
