Oil spill closes eastbound lanes on Highway 104, Mount Thom, N.S.

Highway 104 is closed to eastbound traffic at exit 18A.

Shortly after 4:35 p.m., Pictou and Colchester District RCMP and the Department of Transportation and Infrastrure Renewal responded to a report of a tractor trailer leaking fuel.

A fuel tanker carrying marine fuel developed a leak in one of its tanker compartments and then pulled over.

A Hazmat team from the New Glasgow Fire Department and the Central West River Fire Dept are currently on site to assist with the clean up. First responders will be diverting eastbound traffic at Exit 18a (Mount Thom) for the next couple of hours. No injuries were reported in this incident.
