A sheen could be seen on the surface of the water at a Westport, Grays Harbor County, marina after a 77-foot fishing vessel sank there on Monday, according to the U.S. Coast Guard.

State and federal officials deployed a containment boom and cleanup pads to prevent spillage of the boat’s stores of oil and diesel fuel.

Reports that the Lady Lillian had partially sunk while docked at the marina trickled into the Coast Guard station in Grays Harbor about 6:40 a.m. Monday, officials said.

Exactly how much of the 1,000 gallons of diesel and seven gallons of hydraulic oil on board leaked into the water was not made clear, but officials said a sheen could be seen on the water immediately after the boat sank.

Emergency responders plugged the boat’s vents and emptied its fuel tanks, officials said.

It was not immediately made clear if any crew members were injured in the incident.
