A partially-capsized boat leaked gas into Tonawanda Creek in North Tonawanda Tuesday morning.

Hazmat crews were called to the scene off Sweeney Street around 9:00 a.m.  North Tonawanda Police say the boat was tied up, and no one was on-board when it started to sink.

There's no word right now on how extensive the gas leak is, but we're told crews are working to clean it up. Police say there is no danger to the public.
