(AP) The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is sending two spill experts to Hawaii to help clean up some 1,400 tons of molasses that spilled into Honolulu Harbor this week.


U.S. Sen. Brian Schatz said Friday he plans to work with the state to make sure federal resources and expertise are used to help respond to the spill.


Schatz says the situation is serious and requires a coordinated, aggressive response to help minimize damage to natural resources, marine life and businesses.


Crews have collected about 2,000 dead fish near the harbor.


The spill was caused by Matson Navigation Co. A senior executive for the shipping company says it hadn't planned ahead of time for the possibility of a spill.
