Incendie sur une plateforme pétrolière dans le golfe du Mexique

Preparations to drill a relief well continue at the Macondo oil spill site in the Gulf of Mexico, in this aerial photograph taken from a coast guard helicopter on August 21, 2010. Scientists above U.S. research ship Pisces (not pictured) have started an around-the-clock search for elusive signs of oil lurking beneath the Gulf of Mexico's surface in what they jokingly call "Operation Dipstick."

La garde côtière américaine tente d'éteindre un incendie qui s'est déclaré au cours de la nuit sur une plateforme pétrolière à une centaine de kilomètres au large de Grand Isle.

Quatre travailleurs qui se trouvaient sur la plateforme ont pu être évacués à temps.

On ignore les causes de l'Incendie pour l'instant.

Plus de détails suivront.

INOLTRE SU HUFFPOST
