WASHINGTON — BP temporarily suspended the collection of crude oil from the runaway Deepwater Horizon well Tuesday morning after a small fire was spotted at the top of the derrick of the Discoverer Enterprise drill ship.

In a statement, BP said the fire, which was extinguished, preliminarily was attributed to lightning. No one was injured.
