During the night of March 31, 1985,
while at Porto Marghera, near Venice,
discharging a part cargo of fuel oil
that had been loaded at Constantza,
a serious fire broke out on board
the Liberian motor tanker Eleftheria M.
The bridge, accommodation, and engine room
were all badly damaged,
and the master and two crew members
were injured during the blaze.
After being declared a contructive total loss,
the tanker was sold to Spanish shipbreakers
and scrapped at Barcelona,
to where she was towed in July.
