GREENUP, Ky. (AP) - The Coast Guard says it is responding to contain diesel fuel leaking from two sunken vessels on the Ohio River.

Coast Guard personnel are assessing potential environmental and waterway impacts caused by the fuel spill near Greenup, Kentucky.

The Coast Guard said late Friday that an oil response organization, Clean Harbors, was also responding to help contain the spill.

The cause of the vessels sinking remains under investigation.
