CHESAPEAKE -- Traffic is moving again along Battlefield Boulevard at the Great Bridge Bridge.

A 1,000 gallon propane tank had been leaking at the Citgo gas station at 208 Battlefield Boulevard South near Cedar Road.  It started shortly after 1:30 Friday afternoon.

Captain Scott Saunders with the Chesapeake Fire Department said customers could smell the propane and hear it. 

Saunders said crews stopped the leak but had to burn off the rest of the propane.

People who are inside nearby businesses were asked to stay put until the leak is fixed

One firefighter suffered a heat-related illness but was not taken to the hospital.  No one else was hurt.
