No fuel residue was found in analysis of soil samples taken by the state
at the site of a suspected jet fuel pipeline leak in Fallon, officials
said Monday.

That means it?s unlikely fuel was leaking into the soil in that area,
officials said.

Jet fuel is among the focuses for investigators who are examining a
cluster of 16 childhood cancer cases in Fallon.

State environmental officials ordered the tests Sept. 10 after utility
workers reported petroleum smells near the jet fuel pipeline.

?If there was any fuel leaking into the soil these tests should have
caught it,? said Allen Biaggi, director of the Nevada Division of
Environmental Protection.

?We did wide sweeps looking for (fuels), including oil, diesel, gasoline
and jet fuel, and there were no hits on any of them.?
