The 15 meter long work barge Josva caught fire off Kristiansand, Norway. The fire broke out in the engine room while the vessel was between Herøya and Stokken. The fire disabled the engine and the two crew on board abandoned ship. A nearby sailboat rescued the two crew and were taken ashore. Local firefighters were ferried to the vessel assisted by a NSSR lifeboat. Reports state the vessel’s superstructure was completely gutted. No reports of injuries or pollution released.
