The Old Orchard Beach Fire Department contained a kerosene spill that took place Sunday morning near a wetland area off West Tioga Street.

Capt. John Gilboy said he did not know how many gallons of kerosene leaked from a tank that was attached to a seasonal home’s exterior, but he described the spill as small.

Gilboy said firefighters were able to clean up most of the spill using absorbent booms but the department also notified the Maine Department of Environmental Protection.

The DEP is investigating the cause of the spill.
