Firefighters were called to the Brown-Forman Distillery to clean up 18-hundred gallons of Pepe Lopez tequila that spilled into the sewer system.
An employee was unloading a tanker truck of the alcohol, but put the hose into a receiving tank that was already full.
The tequila overflowed at about 100 gallons a minute.
The fire department called in a hazardous materials team because the 80-proof liquor is flammable. (------------)
