Diesel leak quickly contained at Belmont Elementary School yesterday

BELMONT — Fire and Shaker Regional School District officials said a diesel leak from a school bus temporarily created a hazardous situation at the elementary school at 12:52 p.m. yesterday

According to Lt. Fred Greene and Superintendent Maria Dreyer, the spill came from a broken fuel line on a school bus, but fire officials were able to contain the fuel before any of it ran into the storm drains.

Dreyer said none of the children were in any danger, and the hazardous material drills that the school, the Fire Department and the Police Department routinely practice really paid off yesterday.

"The fire department was very supportive and the state (Department of Environmental Services) was right there," Dreyer said, adding the police directed traffic.

She said the spill was completely contained by fire officials.
