Fishing vessel carrying 2,600 gallons of fuel sinks off San Juan Island

FRIDAY HARBOR, Wash. — A 49-foot fishing vessel carrying an estimated 2,600 gallons of fuel and oil sank off the coast of San Juan Island on Saturday, the US Coast Guard confirms.

The commercial fishing vessel had 5 people on board, all of whom were rescued by a Good Samaritan without incident.

According to the USCG, an estimated 2,600 of the 4,000 gallons of fuel and oil capacity were on the boat, and it confirms that $130,000 was allocated for the salvage cleanup.

Because of its proximity to international waters with Canada, the USCG said it is working with Canadian partner agencies to assess the cleanup effort.
