DURHAM — State environmental officials on Monday were monitoring a small diesel fuel spill that occurred at a Durham wood processor Sunday morning.

Scott Cyr, oil and hazardous material responder for the Maine Department of Environmental Protection, said the spill was reported to DEP just after midnight Sunday.

A tanker from Diesel Direct was filling an aboveground tank at Maine Custom Woodlands, 1326 Hallowell Road, when it accidentally spilled more than 10 gallons.

The truck driver called his company’s response team and the state.  Durham Fire and Rescue officials responded later, but Cyr said the state had the situation under control. 

Crews from Diesel Direct cleaned up the spill. Cyr said state officials were planning to go back to look at the site later Monday.

“We may have to scrape up a bit of a snowbank, but it’s cleaned up,” Cyr said.
