According to the USCG, the unmanned platform was believed to be the casualty of a lightning strike in the early morning hours, 18 August. The T&T firefighting team arrived on board a 95 ft Fast Response Vessel and the salvage support barge CURTIS T, armed with portable high capacity fire pumps and a cache of firefighting foam. The fire was quickly controlled with no significant reports of pollution. Additionally, no injuries were reported as a result of the fire and all T&T personnel have returned safely.
