Four people evacuated after fire on Cook Inlet gas platform

A fire that broke out Thursday morning on board a natural gas production platform in Cook Inlet, near Niksiki, has been brought under control.


The fire on Hilcorp’s Baker platform was reported to the Coast Guard’s Anchorage office at about 8:30 a.m. on Thursday.

All four people aboard the platform were safety evacuated, the U.S. Coast Guard said in a statement.

A five-mile, no-fly safety zone at 5,000 feet and a two-mile safety zone have been established around the platform, the Coast Guard added.
