San Felipe fire update

Oct. 31, 2014 at 04:37 by Mikhail Voytenko in Accidents

According to San Felipe fire latest Malaysian updates, as of afternoon Oct 30 fire was still on, firefighting hampered by fears of dangerous goods in containers in or near fire. No news on the crew. Below is the latest pic of San Felipe fire. The smoke seems to have a strange pinky color. Also, pay attention to coast area – it’s obviously secluded and closed for all activities. I wrote an article on a threat of a major fire on board of big containership last year “Mega threat of mega container ships” http://www.news.odin.tc/index.php?page=view/article/678/Mega-threat-of-mega-container-ships
Taking it all, there’s no reliable information yet as to what’s going on with San Felipe fire. Fire may be already under control, but it may as well rage on, with risks of explosion or massive leak of noxious materials.
