Train spills fuel

(Diesel fuel spill)…A Union Pacific locomotive spilled the fuel Sunday morning.

Railroad workers noticed the spill at 8:00 am in the 300 block of Main Street in El Centro. They call El Centro Fire. The Hazardous Materials Team from Union Pacific cleaned up the approximately 1,500 gallons of fuel spilled on the tracks. The crew will be testing the dirt in the area later this week to determine if it will have to be removed.
