FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- Passengers who were heading to Dallas from the Fresno Yosemite International Airport faced some delays Tuesday morning over a fueling issue.

Officials with the Fresno Fire Department say it happened around 6:30 am on an American Airlines flight.

A hazmat team was called out to help with clean-up efforts.

Authorities say more than 100 gallons of fuel spilled.

All passengers who were on the plane had to deboard and wait an extra two hours.

Neither the plane or the airport were damaged, and all the fuel has since been cleaned up.
