Ultra light crude as mentioned in the press clipping in the first post is actually condensate, which would explain the fierce fire.

Adrian the BBC was less far off the mark than you may think. It is a Suez-Max tanker, also known as 1,000,000 barrel tankers...

Hope the Chinese can rescue all the crewmen, from both ships, and successfully contain any unburnt fuel.

None of the crew of CF CRYSTAL were injured, and the ship subsequently proceeded to Zhoushan port.

Althought the ship has a "charred" look, the bridge appears to be mostly undamaged: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wt6oXaCtsaQ

I guess the poor souls on board died from the smoke (but we don't know anything for sure right now of course).

Brgds.

Yes, German news report that, too. Most probably the whole crew is dead...  :(

The odds are not good at all. Prayers to the sailors.
