Fire officials this week have shut down 10 downtown oil wells operated by South Coast Oil Corp., following a Jan. 8 fire caused by an apparent illegal gas line running from one of the wells, authorities said. There are 41 oil wells in the downtown area--all but 10 operating in compliance with city code--and about 600 wells citywide, including offshore oil platforms, they said. Most were set up in the 1950s.
