The U.S. Coast Guard is responding a fuel spill near Port Graham Cook Inlet.
Several agencies responded to an area in southeastern Cook Inlet after getting a report of a landing craft with a punctured fuel tanker on bard, according to a Saturday media release.
The 116-foot landing craft was being piloted from Seward to Bristol Bay when it encountered heavy seas which caused a breach in a 9,000-gallon diesel-fuel tanker on board.
The Coast Guard cutter Mustang is enroute and should be on scene by Saturday evening while another vessel, Thor’s Hammer, is in the area working to contain and clean up the fuel, according to the release.
Currently, the coast guard is reporting winds at 20 miles per hour and 1-foot seas in the area.
