October 20, 2017

Two crew members were missing after a barge carrying about 140,000 barrels of crude oil to a refinery caught fire early on Friday in the Aransas Pass Anchorage in Texas, according to a report on the Corpus Christi Caller Times news website.

Six other members of the crew were accounted for, the report said.

The U.S. Coast Guard was responding to the fire two miles off of Texas's San Jose Island, the report said, and a safety zone was set up around the barge to keep out incoming traffic.
