Michigan barge sinks, spills oil into Lake Huron
LAKE HURON, Mich. -- The U.S. Coast Guard said around 8,000 gallons of oil has spilled into Lake Huron as a barge slowly sank.
The St. Clair County Hazardous Materials Team headed to the site to try to contain the spill.
Michigan Pollution Control was hired to create a clean-up response plan.
No one was hurt and the six people who were on the barge are now on another tugboat.
It is unclear why the barge sank.
