VLADIVOSTOK, June 29 (Itar-Tass) —— Russia’s the Ardatov trawler ship has been tugged to its home port of Nakhodka in Russia’s Far East after a fire damaged its navigation systems, a spokesman for the Far Eastern sea rescue administration said on Friday.
The accident occurred on June 27 in the Sea of Japan. The Ardatov was heading for a fishing mission to the Sea of Okhotsk after repairs at the South Korean port of Pusan, when a fire broke out in its engine compartment. The crew managed to extinguish the fire but the ship was de-energized and could not sail by itself, although it remained afloat, with no fuel or water leaks. No one of the ship’s crew of 53 was hurt. The trawler was tugged home by the Lazurit rescue ship.
An investigation is underway.
