Oil Stayed Away from Lake

Apparently the worst is over for Pyramid Lake, where 126,000 gallons of crude oil gushed out of a broken pipeline on an unstable hillside....

Most of the oil has been sucked into barrels and stored, according a representative from the United States Forest Service.


There were health concerns after the spill, especially after officials rescued a duck Tuesday which seemed to be affected, but the duck is just "feisty" according to Forest Service spokesman Robert Brady.
