The navy dispatched one Sea King 42C helicopter and a Dornier aircraft to assist the Coast Guard.The fire reportedly spread very fast due to rough sea conditions and strong winds. The Coast Guard ship Rajkiran reached the area at around 8 am, and discovered that the fire had spread to 60 containers and the master of the vessel had decided to abandon ship.
