A grounded cargo ship that had been set ablaze to prevent a disastrous oil spill broke apart, but the strategy appeared to be working Friday, with most of the fuel being consumed before it could reach the shoreline. "We did the right thing," said Coast Guard Chief Petty Officer Gene Maestas. "By burning the oil, we prevented it from spilling into the ocean." Coast Guard Capt. Mike Hall added: "Every gallon that is burned means one less gallon in the environment and the coastal habitat."
