Fire on freighter in Pyeongtaek, most probably it’s mv Fortune Ocean
Fire erupted on board of a freighter moored at berth 7 in Pyeongtaek port, South Korea, Yellow sea, at around 0900 LT Jan 29. Korean media didn’t reveal the name of the vessel, but most probably, it’s a Japanese general cargo vessel Fortune Ocean, which arrived to Pyeongtaek from Hong Kong. Fire started in cargo hold, presumable cargo, coconut by-producrs, was on fire. Firefighting teams extinguished fire in some two hours, no injures, no spill reported.
