A hazmat crew and firefighters responded to contain a diesel fuel spill in Coal Lick Run Wednesday afternoon.

State police are investigating whether anything criminal occurred before the spill was reported at about 2 p.m.

Officials could not immediately say how much fuel was in the creek. First responders checked other areas of the creek to determine if it had spread. Coal Lick Run is a tributary of Redstone Creek, which flows through Uniontown.

A woman called 911 at about 2 p.m. saying fuel was dumped in the creek.

Fayette County Emergency Management Agency’s Team 900 HazMat Resources, state police, South Union Township Volunteer Fire Department and Uniontown Fire Department were among those responding to the scene.
