Ann Kathleen fire and beaching

Members of the Unified Command responding to the Ann Kathleen continue containment and cleanup operations on the coast near Bandon, this week.

Since the initial fire and beaching of the 64-foot commercial fishing vessel on Thursday, partner agencies have removed 1080 gallons of diesel fuel from the vessel.

A helicopter delivered fuel totes to a fuel truck at Cape Blanco Airport, Monday. It also removed an aluminum tank and two large chunks of debris.

Oregon Parks and Recreation Department staff have been working throughout the response to collect and dispose of debris. They will also be coordinating a strategy to remove the wreckage from the beach.
