Rescuers tried to contain an oil slick from a small tanker that capsized at a port in central Indonesia early Tuesday, after it was loaded up with more than 4,000 barrels (500,000 liters) of fuel, a port official and witnesses said.

It was not immediately clear how much oil had leaked from the "Karisma Selatan", but authorities placed rubber buoys around the overturned ship to prevent the slick from spreading, said Sri Sukaesih, the spokeswoman of Tanjung Perak port in the country’s second largest city, Surabaya.

The tanker, owned by the Indonesian company PT Pasifik Selatan, capsized at 1:30 a.m. as it headed to the eastern province of Kalimantan, freshly loaded with 4,000 barrels of medium fuel oil, Sukaesih said, adding that the cause of the accident was not immediately known.
