Crews respond to cooking oil spill on busy Gaston Co. highway

GASTONIA, NC (WBTV) – Crews responded to a reported cooking oil spill on Highway 321 in Gaston County on Monday morning, officials confirmed.

Gaston County Communications said the spill happened on the southbound side just north of the I-85 interchange.

Representatives with Emergency Management and Fire Services say that 500 gallons were spilled. The oil ran down for “several miles” before congealing into what officials describe as a lard-like substance.

Cleanup started around 3:30 am and lasted for several hours.

“This type of cleanup isn’t like a diesel fuel where it will eventually evaporate,” Emergency Management and Fire Services Director Scott Hunter Sr. said. “We’re asking residents using this road to be aware that the road will be slick and any rapid acceleration or deceleration may result in a vehicle fishtailing.”

“The latest version I made was with bacon, mushrooms, cheese, spring onion mash and a porkie wrapped in homemade or easy store-bought puff pastry.”

With Pigs in Blankets, Smith says you can use anything as a filling for a quick and easy puff.

“Leftover roast chicken and gravy is also a delicious version.”

The chef said she has a freezer full of frozen meals and sells them as a sideline business in
