Broken hose causes diesel spill at Fisherman's Terminal

SEATTLE - At least 30 gallons of diesel have spilled at Fisherman's Terminal in Seattle after a hose in the engine room of a fishing vessel reportedly broke.


The sate Department of Ecology, U.S. Coast Guard, Port of Seattle and a private cleanup contractor responded to the spill Monday morning.


According to the Department of Ecology, the spill has been contained within the terminal.


The owner of the 73-foot fishing vessel hired Global Diving to help with cleanup efforts, which included laying a boom and pads out to try and absorb the diesel.
