About 225 gallons of gasoline and diesel fuel spilled into the water in North Bay Village Sunday after a dock collapse caused two fuel lines to sever.
The incident happened around 7:30 a.m. at the east end of an island. North Bay Village Police told the Coast Guard that the dock of Greenview Fuel Lines collapsed and snapped the lines.
An MH-65 helicopter said the spill, comprised almost entirely of gasoline, was about 500 yards long. The party responsible hired a salvage crew to cleanup the spill, which is being monitored by the Coast Guard.
No waterways were closed, but boaters were urged to use caution near the area, The Coast Guard said.
