An enormous fireball, sending acrid black smoke bellowing into the sky. A
video by the Sri Lankan Air Force on Tuesday showed firefighters battling
fresh flames from a fully-loaded oil supertanker off the country's east coast.
This, days after an initial fire broke out on the vessel, its navy said. Fire
erupted last Thursday in the engine room of the crude carrier, New Diamond,
and spread to the bridge of the vessel which was charted by India Oil Corp.
for importing two million barrels of oil from Kuwait. That blaze was doused on
Sunday, but new flames erupted Monday. Navy Spokesman Captain Indika de Silva
said that fire was still burning but the firefighting team now has better
control of the blaze. The country has deployed scientists and experts from its
Marine Environment Protection Authority to assess the environmental damage
caused by the fire
