      Citizens fight Costco's proposed mega gas station in Wheaton

      A group of citizens who are fighting against a mega gas station just got some strong ammunition.

      Several Montgomery County Council members are taking positions against putting in a 16-pump gas station at the Costco that is being built in Wheaton.

      The residents called on an environmental scientist to support their assertions about exhaust from backed up vehicles creating a toxic cloud which will hang over their neighborhood.

      The county will hold a public hearing on a zoning restriction next month.

      ABC7's Stephen Tschida has the story.
