LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT)- A plane headed to Springfield, Ohio was forced to make an emergency landing at Blue Grass Airport on Tuesday after the plane began experiencing a fuel leak.

A private, general aviation aircraft, with eight people on board was heading to Springfield, Ohio when the pilot noticed what the thought was a fuel leak on the plane. 

The plane was diverted to Blue Grass Airport.

Once it was on the ground, crews realized the plane did have a fuel leak, and there was fuel on the main runway.

The plane has been removed off the runway and a public safety team was on site, along with a hazardous spill team cleaning up the fuel.

Officials with the airport say main runway is now open.
