Ship sinks in Roja port; fuel leaked

A ship has sunk in Roja port and a patch of petroleum products is visible on the surface of the water, the State Fire and Rescue Service (VUGD) said December 13.

On Monday at 5:08 VUGD received information from the coast guard and later found that a ship had sunk in the port of Roja. There are no victims in the event.

The patch of petroleum products is likely a fuel spot and it is moving toward the sea. Firefighters placed enclosing and absorbing barriers in the canal.

At present, additional measures are being taken so that oil products do not reach the sea.

The State Environmental Service has been informed about what has happened and firefighters are continuing their work in cooperation with the Roja Port Authority.
