The Jamestown Rural Fire Department responded to a leak for an anhydrous ammonia tank near Jamestown Monday morning, according to Brian Paulson, chief of the department.

Paulson said the department was dispatched at 6:42 a.m. to 2549 94th Ave. SE. Six units and 15 firefighters responded and were on the scene for about one hour. The leaking tanks were located in a pasture and away from occupied buildings.

An unknown amount of anhydrous ammonia leaked from two tanks coupled together for use in the field, Paulson said. The cause of the leakage remains under investigation by the Stutsman County Sheriff's Office.

There were no injuries reported in the incident.
