Fuel Spill in Richland

Posted: Updated:

RICHLAND, Wash. - The State Department of Ecology was called to contain a small fuel spill at a Yacht Club in Richland.

People in the area said they smelled strong diesel odors coming from the Columbia Point Marina.

Early estimates of the spill are around five to ten gallons.  Officials report that a containment boom is around the marina keeping the fuel from leaking out into the river.
