GILBERT, AZ (CBS5) -
Three Gilbert firefighters were hospitalized as a precaution for exposure to hydraulic oil after a line ruptured at a Salt River Project generating station Monday morning.
The firefighters were not injured while responding to the hazmat situation at the generating station at Val Vista Drive and Warner Road in Gilbert, said Brian Ruffentine of the Gilbert Fire Department.
The heat-resistant hydraulic oil seeped onto some hot pipes and generated a large amount of smoke and created some small fires, Ruffentine said.
All firefighters were pulled out of the facility because the oil temperature was above 900 degrees and the area needed to cool down before firefighters could do anything else, Ruffentine said.
All the fires were extinguished and no injuries or power outages were reported.
