ENGINE ROOM FIRE ON BOARD FINLANDIA SEAWAYS QUICKLY UNDER CONTROL

Last night at 22:13, a fire broke out in the engine room on board Finlandia Seaways on its voyage from Zeebrugge to Rosyth.

The crew quickly had the situation under control and the Humber rescue service was alerted and assisted the vessel

Regrettably, a crew member who was in the engine room at the time of the incident was injured and has been airlifted to a hospital in the UK for treatment. No other persons were injured. As the situation was under control, medical assistance from a nearby navy vessel was called off.

Finlandia Seaways is currently anchored off the British coast and we expect that the ship will be towed to Immingham where the cargo will be discharged.
