Gasoline being removed at Ferguson QuikTrip site


Workers spent Tuesday morning erecting a chain link fence around the Ferguson QuikTrip and removing fuel still stored in underground tanks on the property.

The QuikTrip, at 9420 W. Florissant Ave., was looted and burned on Aug. 10, the day after Michael Brown was shot and killed by a police officer.

The store was boarded up and some privacy fencing was put up around the structure after the fire. But hundreds of protesters and media gathered at the property over the past week, and it's become a gathering spot amid the unrest.

Law-enforcement officers began barring access to the site on Monday.
