Coast Guard will start burning some Gulf slick oil
This morning authorities will begin burning some of the thickest oil in a massive slick from a rig explosion off the coast of Louisiana.
The Coast Guard says fire-resistant containment booms will be used to corral some of the thickest oil
on surface, which will then be ignited.
It was unclear how large an area would be set on fire or how far from shore the first fire would be set.
