August 2, 2019

NEW YORK (AP) — Authorities say 300 gallons of diesel fuel have spilled in a basement of a Times Square hotel.

The Fire Department says the spill was reported at 8:30 a.m. in a sub-cellar of a hotel at West 41st Street and Broadway. No injuries have been reported.

A department spokesman says it will take a considerable amount of time to clean up the spill. The New York City Office of Emergency Management tweeted that drivers should expect traffic delays and road closures in the area because of the heavy presence of emergency personnel.
