Trawler Sirius Fire
The 32 meter long fishing vessel Sirius caught fire while berthed in the port of Stellendam, Netherlands. The fire started during the night in the wheelhouse and quickly the superstructure was engulf in flames. The local fire brigade from Stellendam and Goedereede struggled to contain the blaze. With the aide of the KNRM the fire was eventually brought under control a few hours later. No reports of injuries as no one was on board the Sirius at the time of the fire. The Sirius mooring lines had burnt and the vessel had to be towed back to the quay. Early reports state the fire most likely was started by an electrical short.
