The first snow of the season made for a tricky commute Wednesday morning.

A fuel tanker rolled in St. Paul Park.

According to the St. Paul Park Fire Department, the tanker spilled less than 1,000 gallons of fuel onto the roadway.

The fuel was spilled into a retaining pond, where it was easily cleaned up, according to officials.

As of 3:30 p.m. the tanker was cleared from the roadway, and the cleaning of the roadway was almost completed.
