The stricken container ship remains on fire, but is now on tow towards Europe from its mid-Atlantic position
The owners inform that firefighting tugboat Fairmount Expedition owned by Fairmount Marine has begun to tow MSC Flaminia towards Europe.
Simultaneously, firefighting tugboat Anglian Sovereign (L.P. Knight) continues to cool the fire. The tugboat Carlo Magno (Augustea S.A.) accompanies the group on standby.
The container ship's own firefighting system is especially cooling the area in front of the superstructure.
Due to the extinguishing water and damaged cargo, MSC Flaminia is listing by 10 degrees.
