SOUTH ROXANA, Ill. (KMOV.com)- A small fuel leak led to a fire on a Mississippi River barge Thursday afternoon.

The view from Skyzoom 4 showed a small amount of smoke as fire crews worked to put out the fire from land after they were unable to reach it by boat due to ice on the river.  The fire started when crews were trying to cut metal from a sunken barge and ignited some residue engine oil.

The barge is scheduled to be pulled from the river Friday.
