RIVER EDGE, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — Crews are working to repair a water main break and oil leak in River Edge.
Around 11 p.m. Monday, a six-inch water pipe burst on Kinderkamack Road and Main Street. Flooding from the break caused an underground electric cable cooled by a dielectric fluid to burst, sending several hundred gallons of oil to the surface.
“It’s crazy. Last night it looked like some kind of big disaster happened,” resident Drew McLaren told CBS 2’s Weijia Jiang. “So many trucks and helicopters.”
