Colombo, Jun 25, 2021, SPA -- A fire broke out on a container ship sailing toward Singapore in the Indian Ocean, Sri Lanka's navy said Friday.
Navy spokesperson Indika de Silva said the Maritime Rescue Coordinating Center in Colombo received a message about a fire on the Liberian-flagged ship. He said there was no information about any casualties or damage.
The ship left Colombo port in Sri Lanka on Tuesday and is about 480 nautical miles (890 kilometers) off the country's southern coast, AP quoted Silva as saying.
