Deepwater Horizon on Fire - U.S. Coast Guard Video

On April 21, 2010 - the day after the explosion - Deepwater Horizon was still burning.  In this U.S. Coast Guard video, we see efforts to extinguish the massive fire.

The USGS describes the video, as follows:

Fire boat response crews battle the blazing remnants of the off shore oil rig Deepwater Horizon April 21, 2010. A Coast Guard MH-65C dolphin rescue helicopter and crew document the fire aboard the mobile offshore drilling unit Deepwater Horizon, while searching for survivors April 21, 2010.

Multiple Coast Guard helicopters, planes and cutters responded to rescue the Deepwater Horizon's 126 person crew.
