    FORTUNA, N.D. (AP) — A leak of about 12,600 gallons of saltwater and 420 gallons of oil has been recovered at a well in Divide County.

    The state Oil and Gas Division says Future Acquisition Company on Monday reported the March 6 spill at a well about 4 miles southwest of Fortuna. The company said a tank leak was to blame.

    All of the oil and saltwater was contained by on-site diking. A state official inspected the site and will monitor any additional cleanup.
