NORTHAMPTON, MA (WSHM) -

The Northampton Fire Department was called to the Oxbow Marina on Sunday evening for reports of an overturned boat.

Deputy Chief Stephen Vanasse told CBS 3 that when they arrived, they discovered an overturned, unoccupied pontoon house boat.

The department set up the necessary absorbent pads to deal with fuel leaking into the water.

Vanasse said the boat will have to be uprighted at some point.

The Department of Environmental Protection will also respond to the marina to check on the quality of the water, due to the fuel spill.
