Liberian oil tanker carrying Iranian crude oil exploded, causing a three-day fire that ended with a sunken ship. Two tug boats and a plane attempted to extinguish the fire. Seven vessels rescued the crew (27), but one crew member was killed and four were reported missing (died).
None, as it was expected that the high seas would break up the oil and there would be no environmental impact.
An 80-square-mile slick surrounded the tanker, but it is not known how much oil sank or burned.
