Nonetheless, the incident happened at the gulf of Mexico is believed to be caused by a gas leak from an underwater pipeline which then erupted into flames. It was reported in Reuters that the pipeline belongs to a Mexico state-owned oil company, Pemex.
In another video, the netizen shared that fire-fighting boats joined the rescue and it took them more than 5 hours to put the fire out. Ironically, the fire-fighters were fight fire in the water, with water.
