An oil pipeline leak spilled about 126,000 gallons of crude in Pembina County in North Dakota's northeastern corner.

Enbridge Energy Partners LP operates the pipeline, and the company reported Sunday the spill had been contained and was being cleaned up.

A company statement says the spill was confined to the pipeline's property, and no water or wildlife have been affected.

Enbridge says pipeline regulators and the company are investigating what caused the leak. It was first detected late Friday night.

The pipeline runs from Cromer, Manitoba, to Superior, Wisconsin. Enbridge said oil that's normally carried on the pipeline is being rerouted, and the affected pipeline will probably be out of servicethrough Monday.
