NEWINGTON, CT (WFSB) -

The Department of Energy and Environmental protection was called to the Newington town garage on Wednesday for an oil spill.

Officials said a CT Tank Works truck was called in to clean up some diesel oil that spilled after an issue with a sub-pump.

The oil spilled, and officials said not all of it went into the catch basins. Some of it spilled into a nearby brook.

Officials said brooms are being placed in the brook to contain the oil.
