A beach at the Cheboygan State Park in Michigan is soiled with crude and the U.S. Coast Guard investigators are shaking their heads wondering where it came from.
The spill was reported Tuesday afternoon and cleanup crews rushed to the scene to help sop up the mess on Wednesday. There is a chance the oil could have come from a tugboat and car-ferry that are anchored in the water. Investigators are planning on taking samples from both to determine if either are the culprit.
A sheen of oil was reported offshore in Duncan Bay, it measured about 25 yards by 300 yards.
On a happier note, Coast Guard Petty Officer George Degener says the spill isn't increasing in size. However, park rangers have closed the affected areas for public safety.
