VIRGINIA BEACH -- Crews are working to contain an oil spill near Rudee Inlet in Virginia Beach.  

Authorities were called to the 300 block of Winston Salem Avenue just after 10:15 a.m. Tuesday.

Investigators are working to find the source of the spill that is affecting Lake Wesley from west of Winston Salem to the Rudee Inlet bridge.

Battalion Chief Jack Crandall says the spill appears to be a very minor sheen of oil/petroleum and the U.S. Coast Guard has been notified.
