HONOLULU — U.S. Navy divers are trying to remove jet fuel from a water shaft near Hawaii's Pearl Harbor after people using the water in their homes reported becoming sick.

Divers are beginning to make progress and are now able to start "skimming" contaminants that have floated to the surface, the Honolulu Star-Advertiser reported Monday.

"It's the beginning stages, we'll have to see where the Navy's gonna go next. But at least we're assessing how well we can start skimming," said Chief Warrant Officer Jose Castilla, commander of Mobile Diving and Salvage Company 1-8.
