Fuel slick spotted on Potomac River

By Erica Johnston

A sheen of diesel fuel stretching for about 500 feet was spotted Monday night at a marina on the Potomac River in Prince George’s County, authorities said.

Mark E. Brady, spokesman for the county fire and emergency medical services department said authorities were searching for the source of the fuel. He said the fuel slick was spotted between two docks at a marina at the National Harbor development.

In addition to the county’s fire boat and hazardous materials unit, the Coast Guard was also investigating, Brady said.
