On December 8, 2015, at 0509 local time, a fire broke out in auxiliary engine room no. 1 on board the containership Gunde Maersk shortly after the vessel departed Terminal 46 in Seattle, Washington. The fire was quickly extinguished by the vessel’s high pressure water mist system. As a result of the fire damage, the vessel lost propulsion and required tugboats to return to its berth. There was no environmental damage and none of the 23 crewmembers were injured. Damage was estimated at $380,000.
