Crew Comfortably Handled Cargo Ship Fire
A ship belonging to Icelandic logistics company Samskip suffered an engine-room fire last night on its way to the United Kingdom. The fire broke out some 50 nautical miles (93 km) from the port of Immingham in North-East England.
As the crew took appropriate action nobody was injured. The fire was put out without external assistance.
The ship reached Immingham, where the British authorities were informed of the incident.
The damage will be assessed in Immingham to ascertain whether or not the vessel’s schedule will be delayed.
