The 67 meter long self-propelled barge Argo caught fire on the Wester Scheldt near Terneuzen, Netherlands. The Argo was headed to Stuttgart from the Gent-Terneuzen Canal with a cargo of stones when a fire broke out in the engine room. Two tugs came to the Argo’s aid and escorted the barge to the lock at Terneuzen. There a team inspected the vessel and found the fire already extinguished. A local fire brigade arrived on scene and help ventilate the vessel. No reports of injuries or pollution released.
