Red Substance Turns Out To Be Diesel
While out on a jog, one local man says he came across something rather unusual.
While running past a ditch on the corner of Eistetter and Meadow, Leo Lopez says he spotted reddish water in this ditch.
He immediately called the fire department in fear it could have been toxic.
The fire department just confirmed they contained the spill and it did not reach the river or contaminate the drinking water.
It was determined to be about five to six gallons of diesel fuel leaking from a generator.
Fire officials say Laredo Medical Center has already cleaned up the small spill.
