DECATUR, Ind. (WFFT) - Clean-up from a jet fuel spill in Decatur could take a couple more days.

Friday, 195 barrels of fuel spilled into the St. Mary's River after a Buckeye Pipeline failed.

Most of the fuel was cleaned up by Monday, but the river is still too high to get it all.

Once that is done, crews can focus on bringing the pipeline back in service.

The U.S. EPA is monitoring the river and said there haven't been any public health issues.
