San Diego firefighters knocked down an electrical fire that broke out Sunday aboard the 'Dorado Discovery', a 321-foot British-flagged research and survey ship docked at the 10th Avenue Marine Terminal, reports 'U~T San Diego', quoting city fire officials.

The fire began in a storage area of the ship and caused minor damage, but it could take weeks to repair, reported the news channel citing Tanya Castaneda, a spokeswoman for the Port District and Harbor Police. The Coast Guard's investigation might delay the ship's scheduled Oct. 16th departure.

The ship is operated by Odyssey Marine Exploration, Inc. of Tampa, Fla., whose survey work has included many high profile searches for treasure and artifacts.
