Local Ship Channel is Now Clean

CORPUS CHRISTI - The oil spill in the Corpus Christi ship channel is all cleaned up.

It'll take several days before the coast guard is able to determine where the oil came from.

They say about 25 gallons of oil spread about one thousand square feet behind the Flint Hills refinery.

According to the coast guard, Flint Hills payed to take care of the clean-up, and will be reimbursed once test samples show which company is responsible for the spill. Officials say no wildlife was affected.
