Members of SWS Environmental Services clean up a water and diesel mix from the Anclote River in Tarpon Springs May 16, as Coast Guard pollution response team members from Sector St. Petersburg's Incident Management Division monitor the cleanup efforts.
TARPON SPRINGS - Coast Guard crews continue to monitor the pollution cleanup Thursday from a boat that caught fire near the Sponge Docks in Tarpon Springs.

Roughly 4,500 gallons of water, diesel mix from the vessel Skye Marie, which caught fire at approximately 11 p.m. Tuesday, May 14, has been collected by SWS Environmental Services. Approximately 500 feet of boom has been deployed to contain spread of pollution.

The Coast Guard continues to send out a Safety Marine Information Broadcast informing mariners to take caution when transiting the area. At this time, there is minimal environmental damage and no affected wildlife has been reported.

The Coast Guard continues to work with state and local agencies to cleanup any pollution.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
