Moruya Fire and Rescue cleaned up a diesel spill on Tuesday, September 17, and urged drivers to slow down when lights are flashing.
At about 3.40pm, the crew were called to a spillage on the Princes Highway and Shelley Road, Moruya.
"On arrival we found a large diesel spill covering nearly a kilometer in length," a spokesperson said.
"Rain had dispersed most of the spill however the road was still quite slippery.
"With the assistance of council, P384 used spillmax to cover the entire length of spill, to ensure road surface was not hazardous and cause an accident."
Moruya Fire and Rescue remind drivers to slow down to a safe speed when approaching an incident.
"Please remember, when approaching an incident where you can see flashing lights, slow to a safe speed and remember we are there doing a job to keep you safe," the spokesperson said.
"Also please drive to conditions, after long periods of no rain, the road becomes slippery after rain so slowing down is a much safer option in the wet.
"Thank you to all the patient an observant motorists for slowing down early and passing our firefighters at a safe speed."
