Marietta Industrial Enterprises confirms an oil spill on one of their deck barges.

It happened Tuesday morning at about 11:30.

President Scott Elliott says less than five gallons spilled into the Ohio River and it was spilled in a contained area.

The Coast Guard and EPA were on scene.

The Department of Natural Resources was notified as well.

Elliott says it's under investigation and at this time they do not know why it spilled.

He says it was a minor leak, but adds it's very unfortunate it happened.

Everything is cleaned-up, according to Elliott.
