A technical malfunction has been blamed for two separate fires on an International Seaways tanker in Alaska.
The exhaust stack on the 50,000-dwt Atlantic Lily (built 2008) suffered blazes on Friday evening and Saturday morning at the Port of Alaska in Anchorage.
The Anchorage Daily News reported officials as saying both fires were quickly contained by crew members, who were not injured.
There was no damage to the port, but damage to the Hong Kong-flag MR is unclear.
International Seaways confirmed the vessel experienced an exhaust stack fire over the weekend, which was quickly brought under control.
