VIDEO: Cruise Ship Ocean Countess on Fire in Greece

By Accidents
Here is a starling that reveals the fire on MV Ocean Countess at Chalkis port in Greece. There weren't any injured, as the cruise liner has been docked since some recent charter cruises to the United Kingdom. There were 5 people, working onboard the cruise ship when the fire broke out onboard the vessel, according the preliminary reports. No cause of the accident was given so far, but the workers were evacuated in good condition.

The little cruise liner was built on 1976 as Cunard Countess, as the company operated her through 1996. Since that time, the cruise ship has been owned by Royal Olympic, Awani Crusies and currenly by Majestic International since 2004.

The damaged MV Ocean Countess cruise ship is 17,593 GT, max capacity of 800 passengers and was planned to be returned back in service in 2014. This is unlikely to be returned as aerial footage reveals the superstructure Ocean Countess fully engulfed in flames.
