Flames erupted in Visakhapatnam port……..Two in a row?


Visakhapatnam: Huge fire broke out at Visakhapatnam Port at East Q7 number berth crane in Inner Harbor. It is suspected that two consecutive accidents occurred in one place over a period of fifteen days. The casualty happened on midnight of Sunday when workers were on their way to work. Authorities say the accident occurred due to electrical short circuit; fire erupted in Port Harbor Mobile Crane on the 26th of last month. The Iron Ore was loading on an MV accent falcon in the WQ-1 berth in Inner Harbor that evening. Fortunately the crane operator survived the accident and the crane was completely burned.
