CASTLEWOOD, Va. -

An oil spill from the basement of a Castlewood, Virginia home ended up in a creek over the weekend.

Authorities found approximately 10 gallons of oil spilling out of a home at 90 Neece Street.

People in the home tell deputies the oil came from two separate 275-gallon home heating tanks given to them to sell for scrap metal.

We're told the oil has been cleaned up, and the creek is oil-free.
