US Coast Guard Tries to Burn Oil Spill Nearing Land

Hosted by

The massive oil slick in the Gulf of Mexico is now 600 miles in circumference and growing fast.  It's a consequence of last week's blowout and fire on the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig.  The latest plan to keep it from washing ashore is…burning it off.  Brett Clanton reports for the Houston Chronicle.
