Newark roads reopen after gas spill

An intersection in Newark that was closed this morning due to a gasoline spill has reopened, Alameda County Fire officials said.

The intersection at Newark and Cedar boulevards was closed for nearly two hours, after a gasoline tanker crashed into a fire hydrant causing fuel to spill onto the roadway around 4 a.m., according to authorities.

A hazmat team responded to the scene, while several roads were closed during the cleanup.
