RIMOUSKI, Que. - Cleanup crews continued their work Friday after a gasoline spill at a Suncor Energy Inc. facility in eastern Quebec.

It was not immediately clear how much gas spilled from the reservoir, which has a capacity of two million litres.

Suncor (TSX:SU) and environment officials transferred at least 1.4 million litres of gasoline to tanker-trucks.

Authorities said they were advised of the leak in Rimouski at about 6 p.m. on Thursday.

There were no injuries.
