ST. MARYS — The wells at the center of a crude oil leak east of St. Marys have been shut down.
Auglaize County EMA Director Troy Anderson told The Evening Leader the order has been given to shut down the wells until officials can investigate what caused a crude oil leak in the area of Ohio 29 and Plattner Pike Friday night. Clean-up crews have been busy cleaning crude oil from the site since the weekend. Some of the crude oil reached a nearby creek before crews contained the leak.
