A fire broke out on a tanker berthed at a terminal in Singapore on Wednesday, but was extinguished within about two hours with no injuries or pollution reported, maritime officials there have confirmed.

The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) said it was informed at 7:30 a.m. on Wednesday that there was a fire onboard a tanker berthed at Jurong Port Tank Terminals (JPTT).

The tanker has been identified as the Indonesian-flagged Rosa Dini, a chemical/products tanker built in 2003.

The MPA reports smoke was observed on the forward part of the vessel.

Singapore Civil Defence Force marine and land-based firefighting forces, MPA patrol craft, and JPTT’s emergency response unit were deployed to put out the fire and ensure navigational safety. Operations were stopped at adjacent berths and a nearby vessel at berth was moved to the anchorage as a precautionary measure.

The MPA says the fire was extinguished at about 9:25 a.m. The tanker’s crew are all safe and accounted for and there is no damage to the tanks and berths at JPTT.

Port operations and vessel traffic in the area are unaffected.

Equasis data shows the Rosa Dini has been owned and operated by GLOBAL MARITIM INDUSTRI PT in Indonesia since 2018.
