The barge is tied to a pier owned by the Steamship Authority, at 1 Steamboat Wharf in Nantucket. The problem was reported by people on a tug boat next to the barge at about 9 p.m. Thursday.

Terrell said it was fairly uncommon for the Coast Guard to receive calls about barges taking on water.

No injuries have been reported.
