Fuel spill at UVM ties up traffic

Posted: Updated:
BURLINGTON, Vt. -

There was a small heating oil spill in front of the University of Vermont's Royall Tyler Theatre Wednesday.

A UVM spokesman says the school's heating plant was receiving a delivery of 8,000 gallons of fuel oil when the spill occurred. The spill was limited to about 50 gallons and officials say the oil hardened in the cold temperatures, making it easier to contain and clean up.

The incident did cause some traffic tie-ups as car and foot traffic in the area was diverted during the cleanup.
