The 19 Wing fire hall and military police responded to an oil spill Thursday afternoon near the entrance to CFB Comox.

Capt. Trevor Reid, 19 Wing public affairs officer said the spill was reported by a member of the public, and was just in front of the main gate to the base on Ryan Road.

He added MPs were redirecting traffic to a secondary gate while base firefighters along with the HAZMAT team were assisting with clean-up.

It is unknown if the vehicle was civilian or belonged to the military.
