Fire erupted in the engine room, the ship was disabled, but according to an official statement issued later, the ship was about to resume her voyage. According to her track and some other details, though, an accident isn’t yet over or probably, is far from over. The ship apparently was towed in northern direction, most likely in order to get her from busy shipping lanes. She’s still adrift with two CG SAR ships nearby.
