Rockland firefighters responded Thursday morning, May 9, to an oil spill on Lake View Drive near Chickawaukie Pond.

Two oil cans were turned over in the road between the intersection of Lake Avenue and Chickawaukie Pond. The oil had spilled and was draining across Route 17 toward a brook beside the road.

Firefighters poured absorbent material on the road and were checking the brook to see if any oil had gotten into it.

More information was not immediately available, including how much oil was estimated to have spilled. Traffic was reduced to one lane as firefighters worked to clean up the spill.

The call came in at about 10:30 a.m.
