Small amounts of diesel fuel leaked into harbor waters near the Balboa Pavilion on Wednesday, but the spill was contained by a private cleanup crew.

Authorities said between 10 and 15 gallons spilled into the harbor from a gas station about 11 a.m. The Orange County Sheriff's Department Harbor Patrol cordoned off the area while the fuel was cleaned up.

Authorities have yet to determine the cause of the spill, but don't believe there will be serious damage to the environment.
