Environmental impact report in 3..2..1...

" one crew used foam to clean up the resulting fuel spill. "

Aviation firefighting foam is quite toxic - a number of authorities around the world have ordered that it cease being used in training exercises due to problems with the runoff.

(not to mention it being very good at disguising people laying on the ground such that they end up being run over by the firefighting trucks, as happened at SFO)
