Large diesel spill reported at Sooke Basin
Apr 20 2012
Sooke Fire Rescue Service was investigating what appeared to be a large diesel spill in the Sooke Basin Thursday night.
Sooke fire called the Victoria Joint Rescue Co-ordination Centre about 8:30 p.m., to report the spill and ask for the coast guard auxiliary vessel Spirit of Sooke to be sent to help them.
Because it was not a search-and-rescue mission, the rescue centre called the Canadian Coast Guard’s environmental response program.
