The Times: Oil platform evacuated after fire

An electrical fire prompted the evacuation of a North Sea oil platform yesterday, with RAF and coastguard helicopters taking 128 workers off the Tern Alpha platform, 105 miles off Shetland.
The fire, which broke out in a gas generator on the Shell facility shortly before 1am, was extinguished by 5am. Shell said that everybody had been accounted for, nobody had been injured and that the incident would have no effect on Britain’s energy supply.
