NEW ORLEANS (AP) - BP says a fire believed caused by lightning shut down a system capturing oil from a gushing well in the
Gulf of Mexico for about 5 hours.

BP PLC said the fire was spotted around 9:30 a.m. on Tuesday on a drill ship called the Discoverer Enterprise. The fire was quickly
extinguished.

BP says were no injuries, and all procedures were followed and, as a precaution, a system siphoning oil from a containment cap
above the well was shut-down.
