ALAMEDA -- Emergency crews were able to contain a minor oil spill at the Ballena Isle Marina on Wednesday morning, officials said.

A hazmat boom was deployed around the marina to contain the spill, which was reported at 9:30 a.m. It had not spread to nearby Robert W. Crown Memorial State Beach, said Alameda fire Capt. Jim Colburn.

Barry Bena, a U.S. Coast Guard spokesman in Alameda, said a vessel leaked what he described as oily water. The marina at 1150 Ballena Blvd. is located on the western side of Alameda, between Crown Beach and Alameda Point.

There were no reported injuries and the state Department of Fish and Game found no impact to wildlife from the spill.
