LOUISIANA (WKOW) – A natural gas well off the Gulf of Mexico
caught fire and caused the evacuation of 44 workers on Tuesday.
Authorities say no one was hurt.
Officials want to reiterate that the blowout is not as
damaging as the BP oil spill that killed 11 workers and spilled millions of
gallons of oil into the gulf.
The Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement says they're
not sure what caused the gas to ignite or when crews could put the fire out.
