State: No Dead Fish Found After Creek Fuel Spill

DENVER (AP) – State wildlife officials say they found no fish killed in Clear Creek after a tanker truck crashed and spilled 4,000 gallons of diesel fuel into the waterway.

Jennifer Churchill of the Colorado Division of Wildlife said Monday an aquatic biologist checked the creek after the spill was reported Saturday on U.S. 6 near the Loveland Basin ski area. The truck driver suffered minor injuries.

Federal officials were reportedly called to the scene. An Environmental Protection Agency spokesman didn’t immediately return a call on Monday.
