Following received from Laurin Maritime, Gothenburg, dated today: Sunny Blossom has an engine room fire off the Algerian coast around 1745 UTC, Feb 7. The initial efforts to extinguish the fire were successful but reflashed. After the engine room has been evacuated, the Chief Engineer activated the fixed Halon system. After the prescribed period of time, the crew re-entered the engine room and determined that the fire had been extinguished. Two crew members regretfully received minor burns. The ship owner and insurer have contracted a large tiug to tow the vessel to the south coast of Spain in order to repair the main engine and the fixed fire system.

Ship was en route from Milford Haven to Dortyol, so we are assuming she was in ballast.
