In the evening hours of February 21, 2007 the Jackson County EMA office in Sylva, NC received calls regarding a gasoline smell coming from Mill Creek. The EMA hired a cleanup contractor who put boom in the creek to stop the flow of the gasoline downstream. The NC RRT also responded and conducted a hazcat ID test on the product in the creek and found it also contained manganese chloride.

The source of the spill was undertermined and OSC Crowley was dispatched to the scene for oversight and to help determine the source of the spill.
