Tug hits pipeline, erupts into flames
LAFITTE- Four people were injured, one severely, when a tugboat collided with a submerged pipeline and burst into flames.
WVUE FOX 8 reported Tuesday evening, the tug sank but the barge being towed by it was still floating and remained on fire.
The vessel was carrying about 43,000 barrels of "light fuel."
The Coast Guard has responded, but has not provided details.
