Oil prices have jumped after a fire shut down the main pipeline delivering Canadian crude oil to refineries in the US Midwest.
The blaze near Enbridge's Clearbrook oil terminal in Minnesota killed two employees, with local officials saying it could burn for three days.
Pipelines from Canada carry about 1.9 million barrels of oil per day and the closure has hit 20% of US oil imports.
A barrel of New York light crude oil rose $3.77, or 4.2%, to $94.39.
