Hi all,

Several media outlets are reporting that a fire broke out onboard Anek Lines’ El. Venizelos which was on her way from Piraeus to Chaina on Crete. The vessel has turned around to Piraeus and several other ferries were assisting (Blue Horizon, Blue Star 1 and Mykonos Palace). The fire apparently started on her vehicle deck.

No injuries or casualties have been reported so far so at least that is good news.

She is now moored in a cruise ship terminal at Piraeus port. She has developed a slight list because of the water poored to extinguish the fire. Report are that the fire is still going at the no. 3 compartment of deck 1. A lot of firefighting tugs and pollution management vessels can be seen all around her.
