BRYAN, Ohio (AP) - Crews in the northwestern corner of Ohio have found close to 150 dead birds near the site of an oil storage tank leak.

The Ohio Department of Natural Resources says many of the birds killed in the spill are ducks.

Volunteers are trying to wash off about 400 oil-soaked ducks that were rescued from the spill area near Bryan.

The Environmental Protection Agency says it traced the leak to the Titan Tire Corporation in Bryan. That’s about 60 miles west of Toledo.

A hunter first discovered the spill after the oil made its way into a creek.

An EPA spokeswoman tells The Blade (https://bit.ly/17nhaQe ) newspaper in Toledo reports that a problem with a valve on an above-ground storage tank led to the spill.
