West St. School boiler springs leak

Spills 500 gallons at school

July 11, 2012
SOUTHBRIDGE — An alphabet soup of agencies responded to West Street School Saturday, July 7, after sewer plant workers across town detected oil fumes.

Fire Chief Mark DiFronzo said tracking it was partly coincidence. About the same time the department got the call from the sewer plant, they also had a call from a West Street resident complaining of an unpleasant odor, and it turned out to be the same smell. So the department thought about what places nearby had significant oil supplies and the school was one of them, he said.

"We were very lucky it stayed in the sewer system. That's a closed system," he said.
