Most Recoverable Oil Collected After Fuel Station Fire

(Medford, OR) -- Officials say most of the oil that spilled into Medford's Bear Creek last week during a fire at a Pacific Pride Fueling Station has been recovered. More than 20-thousand gallons of various petroleum products were released during the incident. The Oregon Department of Environmental Quality reports some oil remains, because removing it would damage nesting areas. No damage to fish has been found. Some Canada geese and mallard ducks are being cared for by International Bird rescue. NEXGEN Logistics operates the facility, and the company is paying for the wildlife rescue and recovery efforts.
