30 gallons of fuel spill on railroad tracks in North Portland

PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — About 30 gallons of diesel spilled onto the Union Pacific Railroad tracks near Portland’s Cathedral Park on Tuesday, according to the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality.

In a release, the DEQ blamed the spill on a train traveling between Toyota Yard and the railroad yard.

Using absorbent material and a truck designed to vacuum up the fuel, an environmental cleanup crew managed to clear some of the spill that covered the asphalt and railroad ballast, which is the gravel underneath the tracks.
