HOUSTON, July 14, 2016 (PCW) -- A portion of the Houston Ship Channel was closed for a few hours on Thursday due to benzene spill from the tanker Maritime Jingan, which was moored at the Vopak terminal in Deer Park.

According to a TCEQ filing, about 50 gallons were reported to have spilled into the waterway. Clean-up efforts are underway and an investigation is ongoing.

The Maritime Jingan arrived in Houston on Wednesday after leaving the port of Daesan in Korea in early June, according to maritime data.
