The Coast Guard says crews are working to clean up a 10,500-gallon oil spill that has closed traffic along three miles of the Houston Ship Channel. 

The 458-foot tank vessel Chemical Supplier was trying to make a turn Friday night when it hit a barge, gashing one of its fuel tanks.  No injuries were reported.
