Fire cannot burn without water, right? Or at least that is what we thought until we saw this massive underwater inferno in the Gulf of Mexico.
The incident was caught on camera after a helicopter crew flew over the site earlier this month.
Whilst we know that things can burn underwater, this is the first time we have seen what appears to be a massive fireball underneath the water’s surface.
Thankfully, nobody was injured after the underwater gas pipe somehow ignited.
Once technicians had isolated the pipe, the ‘fire’ went out. But it took crews several hours to turn off the gas that was feeding the weird fireball.
