Fire in generator room
A fire broke out in a generator room of the "Cap Blanche", docked at Fraser Surrey Docks, Vancouver, in the morning of July 12, 2015, shortly after the vessel had completed cargo operations. It was extinguished in a short time. The Transportation Safety Board of Canada sent a team to the docks, and the container ship had to remain docked while TSB officials investigated. The cause of the blaze was a small fuel spill in the generator room. The fire caused minimal damage.
