Some 3,000 gallons of diesel fuel have leaked from a derailed train in Interbay this morning.

The fuel seeped down storm drains and is believed to be heading toward Elliott Bay, says Seattle Fire Department spokesman Kyle Moore.  Seattle Public Utilities, the Coast Guard and the Environmental Protection Agency have been notified, Moore said.

A single locomotive in the BNSF yard derailed at 7:50 a.m., said Gus Melonas, spokesman for BNSF. The train was traveling less than 5-miles per hour when it derailed, Melonas said.

No one was injured.
