'Nordic Viking' spill cleanup progressing in Prince William Sound

Spill responders in Prince William Sound are removing the remaining fuel from a grounded fishing boat. The move is in anticipation of getting the Nordic Viking off the rock where it ran aground Saturday, 25 air miles south of Valdez. A few miles of fuel sheen have coated the waters near the grounding site; beach and animal contamination are feared — but wouldn’t be surprising given the size of the spill.
