Fuel begins arriving at frozen Alaska city
Crews on Monday began transferring 1.3 million gallons of fuel from a Russian tanker to the iced-in western Alaska city of Nome.
Stacey Smith of Vitus Marine, the fuel supplier that arranged to have the Russian tanker Renda and its crew deliver the fuel, said the offloading began around sunset Monday.
Crews had laid two hoses for the transfer along a stretch of Bering Sea ice. The hoses are hooked to a shore-side pipeline leading to storage tanks in town.
