The 176 meter long ro-ro passenger ferry Stena Spirit caught fire while off Gdynia, Poland. The Stena Spirit was en route to Gdynia from Karlskrona with 550 passengers when a fire broke out on the car deck. The fire started from a truck on the car deck which caused black dense smoke to spread through out the ferry. The passengers were mustered on deck while the crew extinguished the blaze. The Stena Spirit arrived in Gdynia where the local fire brigade boarded the ferry to conduct an investigation. No reports of injuries or pollution released.
