SAULT STE. MARIE, Mich. (AP) -

The U.S. Coast Guard is working on plans on how it will try to free a freighter that ran aground in Whitefish Bay off Michigan's Upper Peninsula.


Petty Officer 2nd Class Christopher Yaw says the Coast Guard on Sunday was continuing to monitor the safety of the crew of the Roger Blough and to monitor for any environmental problems. Yaw says work is being done to determine the best and safest way to remove the vessel from the reef. He says that could involve unloading some cargo from the ship.


He says there is no timetable for how long it will take. The ship ran aground on Friday.
