Emergency boats work to put out a fire at the Kab 121 oil platform in the Gulf of Mexico last week. Workers are still battling a nightmarish combination of gas and crude leaks, fires and oil slicks at the oil platform almost a month after it was damaged in an accident that killed at least 21. Since the Oct. 23 accident, the platform has experienced at least three fires.
