A huge fire burst out inside the accident on Friday throughout warm job procedures. Salvors were pre-cutting along the intended cut groove making use of six-foot reducing lances, a strategy made use of to route the chain far from thicker areas of steel in the cut course. During this reducing development, the group typically utilizes energetic fire reductions, as well as when smoke started appearing of the hull they enhanced that initiative. As the fire expanded, the accident was left, as well as no injuries were reported.

“Safety is our highest priority and every member of the response displayed tremendous commitment to ensuring that emergency plans were followed during the entire fire fighting and evacuation evolution,” claimed USCGCmdr Efren Lopez, the government on-scene planner.
