Caption: Oil well fire. Firefighters (lower right) standing by an oil well fire. Massive flames are fuelled by the burning of the crude oil from the well. Such fires are notoriously difficult to put out, and can burn for many months. Specialist firefighters are needed to bring the fires under control and to 'cap' the well. This team is led by firefighter Paul Neal Adair (Red Adair), famous for developing oil well firefighting techniques and extinguishing oil well fires all over the world. Among his many achievements was extinguishing many of the fires in the Kuwait oil fields after the 1991 Gulf War.
