LAPLACE - The Coast Guard says a tug boat carrying 4,000 gallons of diesel and 100 gallons of lube oil sank in the Mississippi River near LaPlace.
Petty Officer Alex Washington tells The Times-Picayune no one was on the vessel at the time and no injuries were reported.
Washington says the chemicals were contained and had not released into the water Thursday night.
