First responders were called when a man was spotted on top of a fuel storage tank at Story Distributing off East Griffin.

The Gallatin County Sheriff’s Office said the man was in an unstable frame of mind early Sunday evening when they found him.

First responders were able to use negotiation techniques to get the man down from the tank.

He was then restrained and sent to Bozeman Health for an evaluation.

The Gallatin County Sheriff’s Office says nobody was injured and there were no damages done to the facility.

But the hazardous materials on the scene gave first responders serious concern.

The Bozeman Police Department and the Bozeman Fire Department were also on the scene.

The man is currently in custody but there haven't been any charges yet.
