Crews continue Bronx River oil spill cleanup
Efforts to soak up hundreds of gallons of heating oil that leaked into the Bronx River in White Plains earlier this week continue, with crews lining the waterway with booms and white sheets trying to soak up the slimy spill.
Cleanup crews used boats to get close to the oil, which is floating on top of the water in White Plains, that stretches all the way down the river into Scarsdale.
Crews were able to trace the substance, which appears to be home heating oil, through the city's sewer drains to an apartment building on South Lexington Avenue.
No one's been charged with the spill so far, but an investigation is under way as to whether any criminal or environmental laws were broken.
Officials say the cleanup could take weeks.
