7,000 gallons of gasoline spill in Alaska harbor

Posted: December 16, 2013 - 7:55am

KAKE — Officials say 7,000 gallons of gasoline have spilled into a harbor in southeastern Alaska.

The U.S. Coast Guard said it is coordinating response efforts for Saturday’s spill near at the city of Kake. So far, the response has included the removal of all vessels from the harbor and the use of vapor mist to aid in clean up and to push away fumes.

Officials said the spill occurred when a tank pipeline in the harbor ruptured, apparently severed by a floating pier during tidal changes.
