      Tug spills fuel near Eagle Harbor in Puget Sound
      BAINBRIDGE ISLAND — The Coast Guard and state Ecology Department have responded to a fuel spill near Eagle Harbor, on the northeast side of Bainbridge Island.

      By The Associated Press
      BAINBRIDGE ISLAND — The Coast Guard and state Ecology Department have responded to a fuel spill near Eagle Harbor, on the northeast side of Bainbridge Island.

      An Ecology spokeswoman, Barbara MacGregor, says about 35 gallons of fuel spilled from a tug late Tuesday night as the fuel was being transferred from one tank to another.

      The Olympic Tug & Barge vessel reported the spill.

      MacGregor says two skimmers from the Marine Spill Response Corp. are working early today on a sheen about a half-mile long and 100 feet wide. It’s about 300 feet off shore.

      The Ecology spokeswoman says “Any oil spill is considered significant because a little bit of oil can go a long ways.”
