Police and the Fire Department responded to Boston and Bridge streets after a 9:30 a.m. report that fuel was leaking from a tractor-trailer. The leak was caused by a defective fuel filter, according to the log.

A 10:39 a.m. report of smoke in a building brought police and the Fire Department to 10 Colonial Road, where firefighters quickly knocked down a small blaze in the building’s lobby.
