A major fire that broke out on merchant vessel MV Amsterdam Bridge off the coast of Mumbai on Sunday afternoon, has been brought under control.

The vessel had reached the Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust at the wee hours of September 8th and was en route to Sri Lanka.

The Coastguard took over six hours to douse the fire, and now the cooling process is underway.

The 54,000 ton vessel is carrying chemical cargo which is hazardous and noxious in nature.
