Cape Ray ends historic mission
The "Cape Ray" returned home to Portsmouth on Sep 17 after a successful mission. Part of the U.S. Department of Transportation's Ready Reserve Force, the 650-foot Cape Ray was activated in December and fitted with specialized equipment for neutralizing more than 500 metric tons of sarin gas precursor and sulfur mustard. The ship left Portsmouth with a staff of 35 civilian mariners, most of them from Hampton Roads. The crew spent months waiting in port in southern Spain because Syria's government missed deadlines to hand over the chemicals. Once the material was on board, dozens of chemical engineers did the work of destroying it while the ship was at sea. International monitors and extra security personnel were also aboard. Once the chemicals were neutralized, the "Cape Ray" offloaded waste in Norway and Bremerhaven. The mission lasted so long that replacements took over for all but a handful of the crew. A few, though, were there through it all. Crew members will spend about a month dismantling and removing the equipment that was brought aboard the ship in 2013 before the "Cape Ray" can be back in her original Ready Reserve Force status.

Firefighters in Miami put out ship fire
The Miami Fire Rescue was responding to the "Lizzane" after a fire broke out in the foreship of the ship which was docked at 2150 Southwest River Drive in the late afternoon. As of 6 p.m., smoke could be seen billowing from the foreship. According to reports, the vessel may have been carrying chemicals onboard. When firefighters first arrived on the scene, they began searching the foreship room by room but were forced to back out because of rising temperatures in certain areas causing their boots to melt. The ship's captain led the firefighters through the maze of the vessel. Water from the waterhoses began to boil shortly after coming in contact with the ships deck. Some firefighters had to be pulled out of water that was about, almost waist deep because that water was actually boiling, and they could feel it through their gear. By evening the flames had been contained but Miami Fire crews remained on the scene as they kept an eye on several hot spots remaining on the ship. The entire fire fight took over two hours for nearly 50 firefighters on the vessel, as well as on their own fire boats. There were no reports of injuries from the fire, despite some firefighters being treated from the scene. It was yet unknown what caused the fire, though the welding of the ship's new name may have been to blame, among other things.
