Truck Spills Fuel On High Street

High Street at the intersection of West Main Street is closed this afternoon as crews clean up 200 gallons of waste oil that spilled from a truck.

The Fire Department's hazardous materials unit and workers from Clean Harbors Inc. are on the scene.

Officials said a tank carrying the oil fell off the back of a truck and ruptured about 3:40 p.m.

Some of the oil has flowed onto private property, and firefighters are working to keep the material from reaching the Wepawaug River which flows behind High Street.
