HATFIELD, Wis. (WKBT) - A train locomotive leaked engine oil onto a railroad bed after an apparent blown engine Tuesday.

Black River Falls Fire Department received a call on May 23 at 6:17 p.m. for a small train engine oil leak near Hatfield, a press release said.

The oil spread from the railroad bed to the railroad right away, which had standing water in it. The fire department used an oil absorbing boom in the wet land area and absorbent mats on the rail bed, according to the release.

Canadian National Railway also responded with a team for site cleanup that lasted 1.5 hours.
