Stena Scandica engineers restart two engines after fire

Εngineers aboard the Stena Scandica managed to restart two of the engines aboard the vessel, which experienced a fire on the vehicle deck and caused the ship to black out.

As the situation had become tense, maritime authorities begun an emergency evacuation while waiting for a tug that had been dispatched to tow the vessel.

The fire was reported as the ferry was sailing just north of the Swedish island of Gotland in the Baltic. Stena confirmed that a fire had broken out on the vehicle deck of the vessel.

No injuries have been reported.
