ANDERSON, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Fire officials in Anderson said a tanker overturned near the intersection of Concord and North Main Street on Thursday night.

Officials on the scene said that a company was conducting a test on an underground water tank at an old gas station when a tanker overturned.

Anderson City Assistant Fire Chief Randy Bratcher provided information on the incident.

The tanker overturned because the vehicle's stabilizers sunk into the asphalt because of the weight of the liquid in the trailer, according to authorities.

DHEC was called in to test the liquid that was coming from the tanker.

Storm drains were blocked and the hatch on the trailer was secured to stop the leak from the tanker.
