The 117 meter long, 4168 dwt passenger ship Ben.My.Chree suffered a fire while heading to Douglas, Isle of Man. The fire started in the galley with a large amount of smoke. The master and crew of the passenger ship responded quickly by sounding a general alarm and contacted the Liverpool Coast Guard. The crew were able to extinguish the fire using the CO2 extinguishers and blankets. No passengers were injured, but two crew were taken to hospital for smoke inhalation. The local Isle of Man fire crew boarded to do follow-up checks. Reports state there was minimal damage and the vessel was able to continue on to Heysham later the same day.
