« on: July 06, 2010, 09:40:39 AM »

theres been nothing on the news about this and as its on my patch I  thought I'd post.
seems the cargo loading conveyor caught fire and spread to accom and engine room spaces
bit of a mess,been several explosions . salvage and coastguard tugs in attendance.As far as Im aware
the salvage boys havent been able to get to the engine spaces yet. 1 crew member taken to hospital (not serious)
the remoteness of the quarry (no road access) means fire brigade had to be air lifted in

DeadWeight: 96772 t
