Emergency crews helped rescue the driver of a tanker carrying heating oil after it tipped over Wednesday afternoon in front of the fire department in the Crystal Lake section of Ellington.
Firefighters cleaned up a small fuel spill after the tanker rolled over outside the station around 2 p.m. at 316 Sandy Beach Road.
"I was just sitting upstairs, hanging out, and it sounded like a plow truck hit the building," explained Shannon Bennett, of the Crystal Like Fire Department.
State police are asking residents to stay off the roads if at all possible.
