Oil spill in the Tongass Narrows

Clean-up crews are on the scene of an oil spill that occurred this morning in the Tongass narrows across from Ketchikan International Airport. The spill occurred when a container of a soil and petroleum product fell from an Alaska Marine Line barge. Officials estimate that 100 gallons of the 1000 gallons of product is petroleum.
