Why is there a hole burned in the aluminum helideck?

We are all asking the same questions: Why is there a hole burned in the aluminum helideck? Posted by watcher51445 02 May 2010 Here are some pics of the burning oil rig. Note the helideck with a large size hole in it which would appear to be burned. I did a search on "can aluminum helidecks burn" and found that they do NOT burn... many tests have been done. Plus the decks are equipped with valves all around the deck to spray either water or foam should a fire occur on the deck which would automatically spray... so what are they hiding? --anon
