On Feb 16, 2011, about midnight a fire broke out aboard the "Safmarine Nomazwe" just outside Cape Town harbour. The ship was carrying a consignment of charcoal loaded in Durban en-route for Cape Town. One of the containers on board the vessel was on fire. The containers were monitored and it was discovered that two more containers caught fire. Meanwhile all fires were extinguished. A decision was made by the Ports Authority to bring the vessel into port where Samsa surveyors conducted further inspection. The damaged containers are currently being offloaded to enable thorough inspection of the entire vessel. The ship on Feb 17 was moored at the Eastern Mole of Cape Town.Upload News
