A cargo ship caught fire Friday at an anchorage outside Indonesia’s Port of Gresik.

The fire is believed to have started in the engine room of the KM Fortuner at around 1600 LT.

All sixteen crew members were evacuated from the vessel by the Indonesia Navy as tugboats worked to spray water on the flames.

The fire was reported extinguished as of 1730 LT and no injuries were reported.
