LONGVIEW — The Coast Guard says a 75-foot fishing boat that sank Tuesday in the Columbia River west of Longview has as much as 600 gallons of diesel on board and some of that fuel has spilled into the river.

Petty Officer 1st Class David Mosley says an estimated 50 to 100 gallons of fuel has been released. Mosley says the owner of the wood-hulled trawler Granby quickly reported the sinking and helped put out containment boom to minimize any spill damage.
