Container ship with 13 Indians catches fire, 4 missing

After the explosion was registered, the vessel reported the incident and requested immediate assistance.

"The evacuated crew is obviously distressed, with two crew members now receiving medical first aid onboard the ALS Ceres", said Maersk's chief operating officer.

The Indian Coast Guard (ICG) is still trying to put out a massive fire that broke out on a Singapore-flagged vessel in the Arabian Sea on Tuesday night. There were a total of 27 people on board, of whom 13 are said to be Indians.

The Indian Coast Guard and Maritime Rescue Coordination Center received the signal and evacuated the crew members. Four of the crew members are still missing. The remaining four are missing.

On Wednesday, the ICG plans to deploy its Dornier D-228 maritime reconnaissance aircraft from Agatti Island for search and rescue.

The crew were picked up by a boxship, the 4,380-teu ALS Ceres (built 2010), operated by Atlantic Lloyd.

At present, the search operation is in progress by merchant vessels Als Cicero, Seaspan Zambezi, Navigator Centauri and Al Jasrah.

The crew had abandoned the ship as fire spread beyond their control.

Following the evacuation, the company informed the relatives of the crew members.

The Maersk Honam is carrying 7,860 containers.

The 27 crew members included 13 from India, nine from the Philippines, two Thai nationals and one each from Romania, South Africa and the United Kingdom. The captain is Indian.

"The evacuated crew is obviously distressed, with two crew members now receiving medical first aid onboard the ALS Ceres", said Toft. "We will offer them all the support we can in this very hard situation", he said.

The cause of the fire is now unknown, but Maersk Line said it will investigate the matter thoroughly in cooperation with all relevant authorities.
