It traveled on its own power to an anchoring spot near Lake Nickolet for inspection and there was no damage to the hull.

The U.S. Coast Guard reported the 629-foot Calumet refloated quickly once work got underway, and it was moved to a designated anchorage downriver.

However, due to the aground vessel, the St Marys River is closed to commercial vessels from the Soo Locks to 6 Mile Point.

"Whatever vessels were waiting are moving", Haraf told The Sault Star on Saturday morning. All vessels without prior authorization from the Captain of the Port or his designated representatives shall stay out of the safety zone.

A merchant freighter ran aground downstream from the Soo Locks of the St. Mary's River on Wednesday, Aug. 9 around 11:40 p.m. Marie, Ontario, while en route from ESSAR Steel in Sault Ste. The ship was not carrying any cargo, which made freeing it less complicated.

The coast guard placed a protective boom around the ship as a precautionary measure, Lieutenant Junior Grade Sean Murphy said.

USCG is investigating why Calumet ran aground.
