A pipeline ruptures, spilling more than 600 gallons of oil and saltwater. Longview fire and haz-mats crews are working to contain the spill in a residental area.

The spill happened sometime yesterday near a creek in the 1300 block of Annette.

Investigators say the oil- pipeline corroded.

Environmental health inspectors are accessing any damage the spill may have done to ground water.

The spill is expected to be cleaned up by tomorrow.
