6.3-million gallons of crude oil spilled out of a 12-million gallon tank at the Paulsboro Refinery. The spill is being contained by the berms around the tank. On Thursday workers sprayed foam on top of the oil to keep the odor down, however the rain overnight broke up the foam. Now, the odor is wafting over the entire Delaware Valley. A massive oil spill at the closed Paulsboro Refinery in South Jersey is sending sickening fumes over the region. One of the hardest hit areas is in Delaware County, where school children are inhaling the smell.

The spill happened around 1:00 p.m. Thursday at PBF Energy's Paulsboro refinery at 800 Billingsport Road.
