A Canadian tug boat towing a 295 foot barge has reported the barge capsized about eight miles from the Columbia River bar. The barge was loaded with scrap metal that was lost in approximately 300 feet of water. Sea and wind conditions were calm in the area. A coast guard motor life boat from Cape Disappointment in Ilwaco and a helicopter crew from Astoria were dispatched to the scene. No injuries were reported in the accident. The Department of Ecology has contacted the owners of the vessel.
