Tim Allen, 69, is on the hook to pay for the cleanup of a Michigan marina after his 55-foot yacht spilled over two dozen gallons of fuel into harbor waters.

The Home Improvement actor - and longtime voice of the popular 'Pure Michigan' travel commercials - closed down the Northport Marina on Lake Michigan over the Fourth of July holiday as staff cleared the harbor of about 30 gallons of diesel that leaked from his yacht. 

Allen is responsible for cleanup costs, according to Leelanau Township Fire Chief Hugh Cook, reports the Record Eagle. The chief did not specify how much it would set the 'Toy Story' actor back. 

A yacht like Allen's can cost up to $500,000.

The fire department said that they were not made aware of the accident until an hour after it had occurred and could not begin the clean up until the following day. They reported using at least 1,000 oil pads to sop up the diesel. 

The actor confirmed that the spill had occurred, but said he did not know it was happening until it was pointed out to him by onlookers. 

'I don't think he had any idea what was going on,' Cook said of Allen.
