ELIZABETHTOWN — A diesel fuel spill at Elizabethtown Community Hospital was cleaned up last Thursday morning.

About 25 gallons of diesel fuel leaked from a Moriah EMS Squad ambulance parked outside the hospital’s emergency room receiving entrance, according to the Essex County Office of Emergency Services.

The ambulance had a ruptured fuel line, and Emergency Services and Elizabethtown Fire Department were called to the site at about 9 a.m. to initiate cleanup.

Dams were placed around storm drains in the hospital parking lot to contain the fuel, and it was recovered for disposal. The ambulance was removed for repairs.
