Oil well fires still burn in southern Iraq

IRQ2003040210- RUMELIA OIL FIELDS, Iraq, April 2 (UPI) - A soldier from the Army helps to guard the Rumelia Oil Field in southern Iraq as firefighters prepare massive water lagoons in the desert to extinguish the last two fires at sabotaged oil wells by the fleeing Iraqi Army on April 2, 2003. Teams from Boots & Coots International Well Control and the Kuwait Oil Co. failed to put out the blazes earlier this week, using water from smaller storage tanks. rlw/cc/Chris Corder UPI..
