The Coast Guard is investigating a report of a diesel fuel leak from a 1,000-gallon tank at Sand Island.

Hawaii News Now reports the Coast Guard will determine if any diesel fuel went into the ocean.

A representative for Rolloffs, a trash services company, turned off the valve and stopped the leak. The fire department blocked the storm drain.
