      Leak causes 800-gallon oil spill on farm

      JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) -- The Department of Natural Resources is leading the cleanup of 800 gallons of fuel on a farm in north-central Missouri.

      The agency was alerted Wednesday to the leak from an above-ground storage tank in Randolph County. The company that owns the tank, Brownfield Oil, spread absorbent material and built a berm to contain the fuel.

      Officials say there's no threat to any known waterways. The contaminated soil will have to be removed and replaced.

      DNR says its 24-hour spill line receives more than 1,600 incident reports each year..A full clean-up will involve removing and replacing the contaminated soil.
