No one was injured when a truck loading propane at the Hess refinery in New Jersey developed a leak and released a vapor cloud.

Emergency crews halted the leak at a loading dock at the Woodbridge refinery Wednesday.

Hess spokesman Jon Pepper tells The Home News Tribune of East Brunswick nonessential personnel were evacuated, while refining and gasoline loading operations continued as usual.

There were no other evacuations or road closures.
