Fuel continues to leak from the USS Arizona’s wreckage.

On December 6, 1941, the USS Arizona took on a full load of fuel—nearly 1.5 million gallons—in preparation for its planned voyage to the mainland later in December. The next day, much of it nourished the detonation and succeeding fires that demolished the ship following its attack by Japanese bombers.
