Oil spill off California coast threatens wetlands and wildlife Updated: 2021-10-05 04:08:10 KST

A pipeline failure off the coast of Orange County, California, has caused at least 126-thousand gallons of oil to spill into the Pacific Ocean.
By Sunday - a day after the failure - dead fish and birds started washing ashore.
It created a 20-kilometer-long slick that extended from Huntington Beach to Newport Beach.
It's not immediately clear what caused the leak.
Officials believe it involved a failure in a 28-kilometer-long pipeline connected to an offshore oil platform operated by Beta Offshore.
A probe is underway to pinpoint the cause of the spill and the type of oil involved.
