A supply ship Rohini caught fire on Saturday in the Arabian Sea, about 170 km from Mumbai. One crew member was badly burned in the accident while at least three naval engines were trapped in the form.

The Indian Coast Guard ships and aircraft were reported to have been extinguished. It was informed by the ICG that one of the crew members has been sent to the hospital. Rescuers could not enter the engine room due to high heat and smoke. However, the rescue team was busy trying to evacuate the trapped marines.

According to an Indian Coast Guard spokesman, there was a fire in Rohini on Saturday morning when it reached close to ONGC's Bombay High NQO platform. On receiving the information, the ICG dispatched the ICG Doinar aircraft to take stock and enable the patrol vessel on the spot. 

While another ship dragged MV Albatross-5 Rohini at a safe distance from the NQO ONGC platform rig. Priya-27 ship has also been pressed into rescue work.
