    Spectacular fire on this large self-discharging bulk carrier. It was loading sand or stone when the conveyor caught fire. Only access was by sea, so lots of damage done.

    Nobody was badly hurt, but it again shows how fast fire goes out of control. I'm sure the insurance will demand some heftier shoreside fire pumps and moniters.
