    100 gallons of grease and oil leak from Trains every day. Thousands of gallons from cars and trucks….

    Uh I see a ton of smoke from Financial District. Maybe it’s time for an update on this story.

      that’s from the fire under the bridge near the community college

    the fire was under the Gilmore Bridge closer to Cambridge than the college along the commuter rail tracks. It is possible that that leaked fuel from that train ignited along the track.

    Diseal fuel does not burn like regualr fuel so the fire under the bridge could not be from that spill.
