Hundreds of gallons of oil overflow in Boston

(Boston 25)

Hazmat crews responded after hundreds of gallons of oil overflowed in Boston Sunday.

Crews responded to Washington Street for reports of a heating oil overflow and spill Sunday evening.

The oil company had showed up to fill the tanks, and oil overflowed into a built-in reservoir, which Boston Fire said was built into the concrete in the event that an incident of this nature occurred.

About 150 to 200 gallons overflowed in the Level 2 hazmat situation, with crews from Clean Harbors also on scene to help clean up the oil.

Companies worked through the night to make sure the oil was cleaned up and that air quality was okay.
