The Coast Guard in Alaska says two escort tugs were able to control an Exxon tanker that lost power early Sunday while leaving Prince William Sound.
Three other tugs then helped pull the tanker Kodiak to safe harbor, and there was no spill.
The ship carries more than 25 million gallons of crude oil.
The Anchorage Daily News reports the trouble was reported at the end of the escort route while the tugs were still nearby.
