November 12, 1993|By Bill Talbott | Bill Talbott,Staff Writer

A fire on a bulldozer near New Windsor about 9 a.m. yesterday sent black smoke over the area and brought firefighters from New Windsor, Union Bridge, Winfield and Westminster and the hazardous materials unit from Fort Detrick to the scene on Old New Windsor Road.

Firefighters found that about 50 gallons of diesel fuel and an undetermined amount of hydraulic fluid had spilled on the ground when the equipment erupted in flames.

No one was injured, and the hazardous materials unit left when called to a chemical spill in Union Bridge.

Fire officials said the fire is under investigation and that the state Department of the Environment would handle the cleanup.
