WARRENTON — Aberdeen-based fishing vessel Emerald Sea spilled about 250 gallons of diesel fuel into the Skipanon Marina Monday during an internal fuel transfer.

The vessel was later located in Ilwaco by members of the U.S. Coast Guard’s Incident Management Division. The crew returned to Warrenton to clean up using absorbent pads.

Diesel evaporates quickly; the sheen was mostly dissipated by 1 p.m. Monday.
