A barge run aground in the Hudson River in Catskill Tuesday.

The U.S. Coast Guard and state pollution response teams are investigating the grounding of a barge carrying 66,000 barrels of gasoline on the Hudson River 30 miles south of Albany.

Coast Guard officials say the barge went aground about 8:30 Tuesday morning on the west side of the river near Catskill.

Officials say the barge's tanks weren't punctured and there's no sign of product leaking into the water. No injuries were reported. The cause of the grounding is under investigation.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Department of Environmental Conservation Commissioner Basil Seggos were at the scene Tuesday afternoon. A DEC spokesman says the barge was heading north to the Port of Albany.
