Pacific Basin Bulker Hit by Fire in Morehead City

The 2002-built bulk carrier Albany Sound has suffered a fire in the crew cabins while berthed at North Carolina Port, Morehead City, USA.

According to data provided by VesselsValue, the fire broke out in the morning hours of April 14. Morehead City Fire fighters, assisted by other departments, attended the scene and extinguished the fire by the early afternoon the same day.

Fire damage has been reported in the crew cabins but not other parts of the vessel.

AIS data from Marine Traffic shows that the 28,300 dwt vessel, managed by Hong Kong-based Pacific Basin Shipping, arrived to Morehead City from Rio Haina port, Dominican Republic, on April 12.

The Hong Kong-flagged ship is still berthed at the port.
