BACOLOD CITY, Negros Occidental—Six crew members suffered minor injuries Friday morning when a cargo ship caught fire while docked at the Bacolod Real Estate Development Corp (Bredco) port in Bacolod City.

Chief Insp. Bartolome Biliran, Bacolod fire marshall, said the fire broke out at 10:04 a.m. on SF Adventure after its fuel tank exploded.


Bilaran said an investigation was ongoing to determine what caused the tank to explode.

He said the fire did not spread because the ship’s crew managed to put it out quickly.

Six crew members were hurt in the explosion. They were Artemio Rosales, Ronilo Cabalcar, Froulin Sembrano, Pedrito Mahinay, Deo Noreco and Inocencio Sardido who were taken to the Corazon Locsin Montelibano Memorial Regional Hospital in Bacolod City.
