Crews contain land-based oil spill at Albany port

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) -- Environmental clean-up crews have responded to an oil spill at the Port of Albany after 100 gallons of oil spilled out of a rail car.

Richard Hendrick, general manager at the port, said the spill was contained by Sunday afternoon and that no oil went into the Hudson River.

Hendrick says crews from the state Department of Environmental Control responded quickly to the incident.

Albany's river port has emerged as a major hub for rail and barge shipments of crude oil, prompting concerns about spills and fires from some residents and environmental groups.

Response crews held an oil spill drill at the port last month.
