General cargo ship Soya Maru caught fire off Japan

General cargo ship Soya Maru caught fire off Japan
General cargo ship Soya Maru caught fire on Sunday 2 nautical miles west off Matsuyama, Japan.

The cargo ship was en route from Osaka to Haimen port in China with cargo of scrap, when the fire erupted in the engine room and extended to the whole vessel.

The ten crew members abandoned the vessel in the life boats, while the nearby ships assisted with firefighting and started pouring Soya Maru with water.

The coast guard also dispatched two harbor tugs in attempt to extinguish the fire.

The seamen were rescued without serious injuries, but the condition of the vessel is still unknown and serious smoldering.

The local authorities started investigation for the accident and the root cause of the fire, but presumed the the main reason was too old and poor condition of the ship.

General cargo ship Soya Maru (IMO: 8907462) has overall length of 65.60 m, moulded beam of 13.30 m and maximum draft of 4.00 m. The deadweight of the vessel is 3000 DWT and the gross tonnage is 1924 GRT. The ship is operating under the flag of Belize and was built in 1989.
