Mexican Oil Fire Leaves Heavy Damage

Mexico, Nov 14 (Prensa Latina) Mexican oil firm Petroleos Mexicanos
reported damages of $400,000 on Wednesday, in the wake of the new oil
platform fire.

The fire broke out Tuesday night in the Kab 101 platform, which
registered gas and oil leaks since October 23. It was triggered by a
spark while trying to control the leaks by mud injection.

PEMEX firefighting ships continued trying to suffocate the fire with
water curtains, according to PEMEX authorities.

No victims have been reported so far. Once the fire is out, we will
continue efforts to control the leaks, the source added.
