A fire erupted in the Port of Barcelona after a ship collided with a loading crane at one of the port’s container terminals on the south pier on Wednesday morning.

The port authority said that there were no injuries reported and that the fire has been controlled.

The ship in question has been identified as the Italian-flagged RoRo-passenger vessel Excellent.

Four containers fell from the ship as a result of the collision.

The ship has however been towed away from the scene.

The cause of the incident is yet to be determined.
