Fire on an LPG tanker anchored off the Phuket deep-sea port off Muang District Sunday caused about US$647,000 damage before it was put out.

The fire broke out in the radio room on the second deck of the ship which has two LPG tanks, each capable of holding 10 million litres of the gas, about 5,000 litres of bulk oil and 200 litres of diesel oil, according to the 'Bangkok Post'.

Fire-fighting launches from Tambon Wichit Municipality and the Phuket deep-sea port were rushed to the scene and were able to put out the fire in about two hours. No injuries were reported.
