A cargo ship’s containers are on fire near Vancouver Island on Sunday.
The Canadian Coast Guard stated the fire broke out on the MV Zim Kingston in Constance Bank near Victoria leading to the evacuation of more than a dozen people onboard.
The vessel is carrying more than 52,000 kg (114,64 lbs) of xanthates, including potassium amylxanthate, housed in two of the approximatively 40 burning containers on board the vessel.
Evacuations onboard are set to continue as a precautionary measure.
