Home heating fuel truck rolled over, leaks

A home heating fuel truck rolled over in Newtown yesterday morning and was leaking.  The driver was out of the vehicle when Botsford Fire Rescue arrived on New Lebbon Road and was not injured.  Crews went to work attempting to mitigate the leak and spill.  With the help and tools from the state Department of Energy & Environmental Protection, firefighters were able to clamp down further on the truck’s lid to slow the leak.  They then created a portable catch basin, with absorbent pads, booms, and substrates deployed.  A sand truck from the town was requested, along with an environmental clean up team.  The tanker was emptied of remaining fuel oil.  Eversource was notified of the broken pole, though no wires came down in the accident. Recovery and environmental remediations were still ongoing several hours later and traffic was detoured.
