      File Video: New Carissa + Napalm = Big flames, new problems

      COOS BAY, Ore. - The New Carissa freighter ran aground during a storm on February 4, 1999.

      The Coast Guard airlifted the Filipino crew off the ship.

      The 400,000 gallons of fuel on board worried the Coast Guard.

      A week after the ship ran aground, the military tried torching the ship to burn up the fuel in the hull.

      The ship split in half. | Timeline
