Massive fireball destroys deck of supply ship MPV Everest in Southern Ocean

The fire started around 2 p.m. of Monday. Fortunately, none of the 109 expedition members and the crew aboard MPV Everest were injured.

The fire was put out, but left the ship only capable of going at much slower speeds.

The Antarctic refueling ship still has 3,000 kilometers of long voyage left, trying to dodge bad weather, back to Australia. In addition, a rescue ship will be sent to meet the damaged Antarctic ship.
