SALT LAKE COUNTY, Utah — A fuel spill led to a HAZMAT incident forced several lanes of a Salt Lake County highway to be shut down.

Multiple westbound lanes on SR-201 near Bangerter Highway were closed to traffic as crews continued their clean up after a truck tank rupture spilled 75 gallons of fuel. One lane was open during the incident that allowed vehicles to move through the area.

It's not known what caused the tank puncture, but all lanes were reopened by 10:45 a.m.
