Jet spews fuel over Bainbridge

Fuel jettisoned from an ailing Boeing 777 rained down on Bainbridge Wednesday afternoon.

Residents reported smelling the fuel in Winslow and the south end of the island.

“(The odor) was overpowering for some people,” Firefighter Chris Schmit told the Kitsap Sun. “We had multiple calls, but we were unable to locate any liquid fuel on the ground.”
