Two lifeboats deployed to fire

Two lifeboats deployed to fire

17 April 2017 - 20:00 - Update: 19 April 2017 - 08:18

The Cleethorpes and Humber Lifeboats were both called by the UK Coastguard to the fire aboard the "Navios Orbiter" on Apr 16, 2017, at the Immingham Docks at 3:30 p.m. Both lifeboats were launched to provide safety cover while firefighting took place on a bulk carrier with 19 Crew members on board which had a fire in its accommodation block.

The volunteer crew of Cleethorpes Lifeboat made their way to the station through busy Easter Sunday traffic, while the full time and volunteer crew of the Humber Lifeboat launched from their station on Spurn point. Both boats arrived at Immingham Docks just after 4 p.m. and stood by at a safe distance in case they were required to give assistance. Members of the Coastguard Rescue Team based at Cleethorpes liaised with services on shore at the scene until the fire was confirmed as having been extinguished and all persons aboard were safe. The two lifeboats then returned to their respective stations where the crews could continue with their Easter celebrations.
