US 25 reopens in Kenton County after fuel tanker spill

People in the area of Old Lexington Pike and Derby Road off of US 25 found themselves with no road access to their homes, and without power, Tuesday afternoon.

Shortly before noon a tanker filled with 8,800 gallons of fuel overturned in Kenton County, closing down US 25 for at least 6 to 8 hours.

Hazmat crews reported at least 300 gallons of gas spilled from the tanker. US 25's closure resulted in Derby Road residents unable to get home because US 25 provided the only access to their street. In addition, 100 homes in the area were temporarily without power.

The road reopened after several hours Tuesday night and power was restored in the area.
