Ship fire in Mumbai Port brought under control

     A massive fire that erupted on a ship in Mumbai Port has been brought under control by fire fighters. However, no casualties have been reported. The ship belonging to the Oil and Natural Gas Corporation Ltd (ONGC) was being repaired at Indira Dock. The fire erupted in early hours of Tuesday. According to Pratap Damodar Kargupikar, chief fire officer, said that the fire may have been caused by a short circuit in the engine of the ship. "The ship was very big. There was a narrow passage to enter and was a fear of falling of some under-repair portions. We controlled the fire. We used 20-30 breathing apparatus," said Kargupikar.
