The Sri Lanka Navy, Sri Lanka Air Force, Sri Lanka Ports Authority, the Indian Navy and the Indian Coast Guard are currently working together to control the fire that erupted after an explosion of a boiler in the main engine room of MT New Diamond, an oil tanker sailing 38 nautical miles off Sangamankanda Point east of Sri Lankan seas, around 8.00 a.m yesterday.

Navy had rescued 22 of the 23 crew members aboard the oil tanker, however, the preliminary information from the ship's crew confirmed that a Filipino seaman onboard had died in a boiler explosion. (Navy.lk)
