A duck boat suffered a fire in its engine room at McCovey Cove, California. The vessel sent out a distress call and the Coast Guard dispatched a rescue boat and the San Francisco Fire Department dispatched a fire boat to the scene. The Coast Guard rescued the 28 people on board and tranported them to shore. The Fire Boat extinguished the fire. No reports of injuries. The cause of the fire is under investigation. A report states the fire started after the engine overheated.
The 53 meter long, 556 dwt fishing vessel Krasnoselsk capsized and sank while moored in Hundeidvika harbour, Sykkylven, Norway. The vessel was berthed when the storm struck the area with waves up to 12 meters in height. The storm battered the Krasnoselsk’s hull against the quay until it was holed and sank. The 36 crew on board were able to evacuate to the quay with no injuries. Pollution was reported as the vessel had 80 tons of fuel and another four tons of butter oil on board when it sank. Authorities have been unable to contain the pollution as the weather conditions have prevented any containment booms being deployed. The Krasnoselsk was in port to have a new cold storage unit installed.
