(THIS IS AN ARCHIVE PHOTO, NOT THE PHOTO OF ACTUAL FIRE ON MSC FLAMINIA)

As of morning July 16 MSC Flaminia is drifting in mid-Atlantic in 47 52N  30 44W area with a large plume of smoke seen from passing vessels. One of the four injured crew died from heavy burns on board of MSC Stella, the remaining three were taken to Azores by helicopter, one of them being treated in intensive care. There were 25 people on board, 23 crew (5 German, 3 Polish and 15 Filipino) and 2 passengers. Reportedly, two tugs with firefighting equipment are on the way to a burning vessel, ETA July 17 afternoon. Manager of the vessel, German company NSB Niederelbe just can’t explain what happened and will stay in dark until specialists will reach MSC Flaminia. Crew said fire started in hold number four, reportedly some containers were loaded with combustible bleaching agent calcium hypochlorite. The hull and P and I insurer for the vessel is Swedish Club, which already suffered a major loss from boxship Rena disaster in New Zealand.

To Concerned Editor and Author of Article:

It is concurred what others have written.

It is totally unacceptable to publish a wrong photo of another vessel.

Imagine the world wide web is connected and is accessible to affected families and you sure did cause an extreme panic to them. They must be hungry for real news for your lead story that is inaccurate.

Best is to take the photo off this website and insert a new photo of vessel (i.e. not on fire).

Agreed
I don't even know why there is a photo posted and I concur with the three who posted before me that this is a picture of the Hyundai Fortune.

Wikipedia has better information than this horribly written article. Read the wiki here and find some better sources: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MV_MSC_Flaminia

The photo should be removed altogether.

Wrong Picture
You should cite that this isn't from the MSC vessel that is currently on fire. This picture is from the Hanjin vessel from a while ago.

wrong picture
The picture of that blue vessel on fire is not of the MSC Flaminia.

Incorrect
Your picture associated with this article is NOT of the MSC Flaminia, and is a very poor choice for the sake of having an image of burning containers to go along with a story. I'm sure APL, Mitsui, and OOCL would be dissapointed in your choice.
