Cleaning Up A Bay Spill

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- Coast Guard officials say speed may have been a factor in a cargo boat crash that resulted in the San Francisco Bay's worst oil spill in nearly two decades.

About 58,000 gallons of heavy fuel leaking into the water and rescue teams have been racing to save hundreds of seabirds tarred with it. At least 60 birds were found dead while 200 live birds have been recovered and sent to a rehabilitation center.

Federal officials are planning to make an aerial survey of the damage.
