OXNARD, Calif. - The Oxnard Police Department reported a fertilizer spill Monday afternoon that led to multiple temporary road closures.

Police said that around 2:16 p.m., a truck loaded with fertilizer crashed at Rose Avenue and Wooley Road, causing its load of fertilizer and gas to spill into the roadway.

By 2:44 p.m., Oxnard City Fire advised personnel that this was a hazmat scene.

Both Rose and Wooley were closed while hazmat crew responded to clean up the mess.

Police expect the operation to take a couple of hours, so the roads will not be reopened until the early evening.
