The 64 meter long dredger Ohf 32 caught fire on the Rhine between Nierstein and Nackenheim, Germany. The Ohf 32 had been moored alongside two barges when the fire broke out. The dredger was engulf in dark plumes of smoke forcing a halt to traffic to a nearby highway. The crew attempted to put out the blaze for an hour when two crew had to be taken ashore due to smoke inhalation. The local fire brigade arrived on scene and fought the blaze from the shoreline. No reports of pollution released.
