    The Chief of the Waltham Fire Department said no one has any idea how much oil has spilled, nor for how long the spill has been ongoing; the good news, however, is that the department has been able to stop the oil from spreading.

    Tonight, heavy machinery has been brought in to start the clean-up process, while emergency crews are expected to arrive on the scene on Thursday to help determine the source of the spill once and for all.
