    Coast Guard General states the platform is still on fire. They are in the process of rescuing the workers in the water, there are 13 of them and one with potential injuries.

    More as it comes..

    Yep, all rescued safe and no oil seen in the water so that's a big plus.

    Federal investigation into the safety standards/practices of oil platforms? I think so.
