A cargo ship disabled in the Bering Sea has reached Alaska's Dutch Harbor.

The Golden Seas was towed more than 500 miles along the Aleutian Islands chain and reached Broad Bay in Dutch Harbor shortly before 1 p.m. Tuesday.

The Coast Guard says it will remain at anchor while repairs to its engine are made.

The 738-foot ship, with a crew of 20 and cargo of canola seed, lost some power Friday in the Bering Sea and started drifting. The ship has nearly a half-million gallons of fuel oil aboard. The Coast Guard says no pollution has been reported.
