MADRID, April 13 /TASS/. Fire is still raging on the Oleg Naidyonov, a Russian trawler that went ablaze on the Spanish-owned Canary Islands. The administration of the Las Palmas port ordered to tow the trawler into the open sea to a distance of 20 miles (about 37 km) to the south of Gran Canaria Island, the Spanish Sea Rescue Service reported on Sunday.
"The trawler is under constant observation. There are no crewmen onboard. The vessel is posing no treat to navigation," a Sea Rescue Service representative said.
The Oleg Naidyonov was moored at the Las Palmas port for repairs when a fire broke out in its engine room last Saturday. All the 72 crewmen were evacuated from the burning ship. There are no casualties. Spanish firefighters have been trying to suppress the fire for the past 24 hours all in vain. After that, it was decided to tow the vessel to the open sea.
