LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - After the early Tuesday morning oil spill into the Calcasieu River near CITGO, the company has released a statement.
The U.S. Coast Guard reports two barrels of an oil mixture spilled into the Calcasieu River around 5 a.m. Tuesday, May 1. The oil was expected to evaporate quickly in the heat, while crews worked to boom the area and use a vacuum to remove the product.
Dunn went on to say, "CITGO personnel worked with all agencies to ensure quick and efficient clean-up measures were taken."
The cause of the spill is still under investigation.
