Sarnia Fire & Rescue Services responded to the north slip at the government docks late Thursday morning after a barge carrying an excavator capsized and sank.

Public Education Officer Tom Marshall says no injuries are reported.

The Chemical Valley Emergency Coordinating Organization issued a Code 5 just before 11:30am, for a small diesel spill.

A Code 5 is notification of an incident occurring outside of industry that may require CVECO assistance.
