     Cleanup continues at the site of a fuel spill Friday morning in Yellowstone National Park. Some 4,800-gallons of gasoline spilled when a fuel pup trailer rolled onto its side.

      The EPA is overseeing the cleanup along Hwy 191. Work on Monday included cleaning up fuel, pumping up contaminated water, and excavating contaminated soil in and around a wetland next to the highway. 

      Officials say the wetland feeds nearby Grayling Creek, but there had been no reports of gasoline reaching the creek. Park law enforcement cited the driver for failure to maintain control.
