VANCOUVER – The City of Vancouver says there has been a diesel spill in False Creek.

The city sent a series of tweets Tuesday night saying the coast guard was on the scene of a spill near the Burrard Street Bridge.

The messages say the coast guard had determined the fuel was likely diesel and its source is not known.

It’s unclear how much fuel leaked into the water.

The city says the diesel cannot be recovered and will dissipate on its own.

The coast guard will continue to monitor the spill.
