The crew of the flaming ship "Vitim" was evacuated and sent to Vladivostok. There were no casualties among the 30 crew members.

The message about smoke on the ship was received by the ship owner from the captain at 6:00 a.m. on March 6, at the operational headquarters of the shipowner company. The emergency situation on a fishing vessel owned by Pacific Crab LLC (home port of Vladivostok) is being localized. The tug "Rescuer Zaborshchikov" was sent to extinguish the fire, the approach of the rescue ship "Lazurit" is expected.

Due to strong smoke, the emergency crew of the crew could not immediately determine the source of the ignition. By the decision of the captain, a volumetric fire extinguishing was started. For the safety of people, it was decided to leave the ship.

The shipowner company, together with the monitoring and rescue services, establish the reasons for the incident.
