Crews clean up oil spill near Caldwell College and a child care center

(01/01/05) CALDWELL - HAZMAT crews in Essex County were working to clean up an oil spill Saturday near Caldwell College.

The spill occurred at the corner of Ryerson Avenue and Bloomfield Avenue near a childcare center. Workers say they have contained the spill to a portion of a stream running between the college and Kiddie Campus Child Care.

The spill is believed to be the result of a 60,000-gallon oil tanker located up the road at the old Essex County Jail, which is no longer in use.
