BALTIC FERRY FIRE





MS Lisco Gloria

For the second time in two days there has been a maritime incident in Europe, first an overtaking collision off Ushant, Brittany, second this fire in Western Baltic Sea. As can be seen from the photos supplied by the German maritime authorities the davits are swung outboard indicating rescue craft were launched. It appears all 250 (approximately) persons on board were saved, 21 are reported injured none seriously. The cause of the fire was an "upper deck explosion" source at this time is not known. The ferry was en route from Kiel, Germany to Klaipeda, Lithuania.

Good Watch
