Yantian Express seeks refuge in Halifax

544 Yantian Express

 

The fire on board Hapag-Lloyd’s Yantian Express is still smouldering but is under control. She remains approximately 1700 kilometres southeast of Halifax. The 17 Filipino crew members taken off the ship are now safely back in the Philippines while five crew members returned to the ship after the fire was contained. The salvors have made a request to Transport Canada for a place of refuge in Halifax.
