Cooking oil dump gives RI city eau de french fries
CRANSTON, R.I. (AP) - April 13, 2011 (WPVI) -- Some 30 gallons of used cooking oil has been spilled over several streets in a Rhode Island city, leaving behind the smell of french fries.
Cranston Deputy Fire Chief Keith Newman told a local television station that the soybean oil was kept in 5-gallon containers that apparently fell off a truck Monday. Firefighters found the containers in four spots around Cranston.
The cooking oil was spilled along an entire block of one street, a mess left for environmental officials to clean up.
Newman told The Associated Press that his clothes smelled like french fries after he got back to the fire station.
The fire department is searching for the driver who made the mess.
