Posted: Thursday, June 28, 2001

JUNEAU ((AP) -- Spill response workers were trying to clean up about a 500-gallon diesel spill Thursday morning in Tee Harbor, about 20 miles from downtown Juneau.

Coast Guard officials said a flexible hose connection in a pipeline burst about 11 p.m. Wednesday night at Donahue's Marina.

The pipeline was shut down, and workers enclosed the spill area with absorbent boom.

Coast Guard Petty Officer Darrel Wilson said cleanup work was continuing Thursday morning, and the marina was closed to boat traffic.

There were no reports of oiled wildlife, but fuel got on several boats in the marina.
