“It is worrying that the fire has not been extinguished, but it has not spread and the ship’s condition is still good. Our efforts are therefore not fruitless, we take small steps forward while we plan for and prepare for the situation to turn around and escalate,” says Jonas Holmstrand, who is leading the Coast Guard’s effort.
The ship’s 17 crew members remain on board the vessel as firefighting continues. The Coast Guard said both the crew members and fuel tanks are at the ship’s stern, while the fire is burning closer towards the bow.
