Gas well in the Gulf continues to burn
NEW ORLEANS - An out-of-control natural gas well off the Louisiana coast continues to burn after it caught fire following a blowout that prompted the evacuation of 44 workers.
Eileen Angelico, a spokeswoman for the Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement, told The Associated Press early Wednesday that no injuries were reported as a result of Tuesday night's fire.
She said it wasn't known what caused the gas to ignite.
Angelico says Wild Well Control Inc. has been hired to try to bring the well under control.
The gas blowout was reported Tuesday morning.
