Four dead after Mexican oil rig catches fire
MEXICO CITY - Mexico's state-owned oil company says a fire at an oil platform in the Gulf of Mexico has killed four workers.
Sixteen others were injured in the fire on the shallow-water platform, and 300 were evacuated. The injured are being treated at a hospital in Campeche, on the Yucatan Peninsula.
Pemex says eight firefighting boats have been working to extinguish the flames.
It's not clear whether any significant amount of oil has spilled into the Gulf.
