Leaky tank spills 75-gallons of home heating oil, over Ashaway home's yard

Posted: Updated:

More than 75-gallons of home heating oil spilled out, onto a yard in Ashaway, on Tuesday night.

The homeowners called the Ashaway Fire Department after smelling gas and detecting a leak in their 275-gallon, outdoor home heating oil tank.

Firefighters were able to clean-up most of the spill using special absorbent wipes.

The homeowners are working with the Rhode Island DEM to make sure the spill is properly cleaned-up and will make sure that the soil tainted by the spilt oil is either removed or cleansed, to make sure it doesn't contaminate the surrounding ground.
