A fire has broken out on a containership docked at the Port of Hamburg on Thursday September 1, 2016, according to reports.
More than a hundred firefighters have been at the scene, according to a Hamburg fire brigade spokesperson.
The fire allegedly began on the Liberian ship the CCNI Arauco and local residents have been asked to keep their doors and windows shut as reinforcements have been called to control the blaze.
This comes a day after a fire erupted at the Port of Colombo at a container terminal which has launched an investigation.
There was also a fire earlier in July, 2016 at the Rumo sugar and grain terminal at the Port of Santos in Brazil.
PTI will report updates as they emerge.
