CLIO, Mich. — Authorities say oil has been found in a creek in the Flint-area community of Clio.

The Flint Journal reports (http://bit.ly/2qa7ox9 ) crews responded on Thursday evening after a film of oil was spotted on Pine Run Creek in Clio’s downtown.

There was no immediate estimate of how much oil was in the creek, which eventually flows into the Flint River. The source of the oil was under investigation.

The Genesee County Hazardous Materials team and Michigan Department of Environmental Quality were notified about the discovery.
