MONTVILLE, NJ – An oil spill on Pine Brook Road resulted in the Montville Township Police and Towaco Fire Departments’ dispatch mid-day on Friday.

An anonymous caller reported an oil spill near 20 Pine Brook Rd. just after noon on Sept. 25, Police Chief Andrew Caggiano said.

“It appeared to be less than a gallon of oil,” Towaco Fire Chief Kenneth Breeman said. “We responded with our special service truck and put some absorbent material on it.”
