SHARE CAPTION ONLY: STILL BURNING ON THE HIGH SEAS

Smoke rises from the 260,000-ton Maersk Navigator about 110 miles northwest of Sumatra, Indonesia. The supertanker, with a full load of crude oil, collided with an empty tanker Thursday. Salvage experts boarded the leaking supertanker Friday and secured it to a tug to keep it from drifting. Officials said fears of an environmental disaster had receded because the oil is being easily dispersed.
