AKRON, OH (WOIO) -

An early morning HazMat situation at an Akron Sunoco gas station.

An anonymous caller phoned 911 shortly after midnight Friday to report an abandoned car with the pump still going at the East Archwood and Inman Street gas station.

19 Action News has learned the safety switch wasn't working properly, so after the tank was filled, the gas kept pumping. A total of 212 gallons was released.

Firefighters shut off the gas and cleaned up the gasoline with absorbent before notifying the EPA.

The incident remains under investigation.
