YAKIMA, Wash. -- Cleanup of an abandoned gas station in Yakima could begin in January.

Storage tanks leaked about 20,000 gallons of gas at the former Tiger Oil station. The vacant business at the corner of 24th Avenue and Nob Hill Boulevard is the worst of four contaminated Tiger Oil sites in Yakima.

The city bought all four locations earlier this year. It's working with the Department of Ecology on the cleanup.

Decontamination could cost up to a million dollars. State grants would pay for most of that.
