Shimmering shroud


A sheen and absorbents from a diesel fuel spill late Monday afternoon still were visible Tuesday in the parking lot of the Indian Lake Moose Lodge. The driver left the scene when confronted about the leak, trailing more fuel from the bed of the truck, dumping a total of about 25-30 gallons, some of which seeped into Indian Lake. Haz-Mat and Lakeview Fire Department crews were on the scene about four hours containing the spill amidst foggy conditions. Because of the nature of the spill and its proximity to the lake, the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency and the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, were called in to investigate the environmental ramifications of the spill. Logan County Sheriff’s Deputies continue to examine video evidence and witness reports to locate the driver. (EXAMINER PHOTO | RICK PITTS)
