The rupture occurred just after sunrise Friday near an offshore drilling platform.

Pemex called in pumping boats to add another layer of water on top of the massive fire. The company cut off the gas going into the underwater pipeline and extinguished the fire. Operations are normal at this hour but a full investigation is expected.
