An oil platform has apparently exploded while out of operation south of Vermilion Bay, Louisiana. See the picture below for the approximate location in comparison to the Deepwater Horizon Spill.
Multiple sources are saying that 13 people were on the platform, and one person is injured. The Coast Guard is working to put out the fire. Mariner Energy is the rig owner. The water depth is approximately 350 feet. The MSNBC is reporting that the coast guard has informed them that the platform was not a drilling platform.
