LANCASTER, PENNSYLVANIA - A 550-gallon oil spill on a Clay Township property that fouled nearby tributaries in state gamelands Tuesday was likely caused by a faulty fuel line or a rusted tank, fire officials said.Two 275-gallon underground tanks at 1795 Kleinfeltersville Road, near Millstone Road, were filled Monday with heating oil, Durlach Mount Airy Fire Chief Don Moyer said.There was no indication of a problem until Tuesday, when hikers in separate parts of the nearby Middle Creek Wildlife Management Area reported a strong odor of oil to park officials, Moyer said. Pennsylvania Game Commission officials investigating the report were able to trace the problem to the Kleinfeltersville Road property, and fire crews were dispatched just before noon Tuesday, he said.
