CRESCENT SPRINGS, Ky. (FOX19) - A large fuel spill shut westbound Buttermilk Pike from the interchange with I-71/75 to Anderson Ferry Road for more than four hours Friday.

A hazmat crew needed several hours to clean up the spill, which was reported just before 8:30 a.m., according to Kenton County dispatchers.

Buttermilk Pike re-opened around 1 p.m.

“Grandview Dr. was also closed off to traffic between Buttermilk and Buttermilk Crossing, Buttermilk was very slick and it was difficult to keep control of the car turning onto the detour on Buttermilk Crossing," Jameson King tells us.

Several law enforcement agencies were on scene including officers from Crescent Springs, Erlanger and Fort Mitchell; Kentucky State Police and a Rumpke truck.

No injuries have been reported.

FOX19 NOW has a crew at the scene and will continue to update this breaking story on air and all our digital platforms.
