Ducks rescued from site of jet fuel tanker fire; 1 dies

Ducks found covered in jet fuel treated by animal clinic

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Several ducks were being monitored Wednesday after they were rescued near the location of last week’s tanker fire.

According to a Facebook post from Indianapolis Animal Care Services, the ducks were covered in the jet fuel that leaked after the Thursday crash. The crash happened on a ramp from northbound I-465 to I-70 on the east side.

Three of the ducks were taken to an animal clinic to be treated, but officials say one of the ducks died.
