Dark clouds of smoke and fire are seen as oil burns during a controlled fire in the Gulf of Mexico on Thursday. The U.S. Coast Guard, working in partnership with BP, local residents, and other federal agencies conducted the in situ burn to aid in preventing the spread of oil following the April 20 explosion on the offshore drilling oil rig, Deepwater Horizon.
