Gas Leaks into Greers Ferry Lake

HEBER SPRINGS, AR - State emergency management officials say they've nearly contained a gasoline leak at Greers Ferry Lake.

The Arkansas Dept. of Emergency Management says two 3,000 gallon tanks at the Shiloh Marina in Cleburne County began leaking into the lake Saturday.  Officials say they don't know the cause of the leak or how much gasoline seeped into the lake.

Workers placed booms in the lake to stop the gasoline from spreading across its waters.

Officials said the leak was 90 percent contained Monday.  Parts of the marina will remain closed during the cleanup.
