Sydney Harbor barge fire: A huge barge fire broke out on board a ship as a plume of black smoke rose above the water


Firefighters have extinguished a fire that engulfed a large cruise ship in Sydney Harbour.

Fire and Rescue NSW crews responded to a triple-0 call and raced to Birkenhead Harbor in Drummoyne in Sydney’s inner west after large plumes of black smoke were seen coming from a drifting cruiser at 10.06am on Saturday.

Five trucks and 18 firefighters arrived at 10:12 a.m. and worked quickly to extinguish the flames.

Witnesses said thick black smoke could be seen for several kilometers around the port.

One port worker who suffered smoke inhalation was treated by paramedics at the scene and has since been given the all-clear.

Two fire crews were sent out on the water to deal with the ship at close range, one on a NSW Ports Authority tug and the other on a police vessel.

Another three handlines worked from shore to extinguish the flames.

Crews brought the fire under control by 11 a.m. before moving the cruiser to the west side of the harbor for complete extinguishment.

Specialist emergency technicians are expected to inspect the ship once the threat is no longer on board.
