BETHLEHEM- The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation is looking for help as they investigate a large oil spill in Selkirk.

The DEC says at some point last week, petroleum oil was spewed along Bridge Street near the fire station in the Town of Bethlehem.

They cleaned up an estimated 50 gallons of oil stretching nearly one mile.

But now they're wondering how it got there.

They're asking anyone with information to call them at 1-877-457-5680.
