UPDATE: Gulf well fire now out

Natural gas has finally stopped flowing from the damaged well in the gulf and the fire is now out.  It's about 60 miles off the coast of Louisiana. The accident happened Tuesday, when workers aboard the rig hit an unexpected pocket of gas while preparing the well for production.  All 44 people were safely evacuated.  While the rig is still standing, parts of the structure above water have collapsed as a result of the intense heat.
