One week after an oil spill in the Belize harbor near the Fort Street Tourism Village, the source of the contamination has been identified. According to the manager of the filling pump for marine vessels Floyd Brown, thirteen gallons of gasoline leaked into the Caribbean Sea when a fuel line was ruptured. According to information provided to Love News, the lead was first discovered between five and six o’clock last Thursday morning, after a security guard smelt the pungent odor of gasoline and went to investigate. It was discovered that an old refrigerator had become lodged against the fuel pipe, rupturing it. At the time of the incident, officials of the Belize Port Authority, the Department of the Environment as well as the Fort Street Tourism Village were carrying out an investigation to try and determine what caused the gas leak.
