Fishermen rescued after Taiwanese vessel catches on fire

A fire burns uncontrollably aboard the Taiwanese fishing vessel Shin Maan Chun Saturday in the Pacific Ocean. The fire forced the crew of nine to abandon ship and through a coordinated effort between the U.S. 7th Fleet and U.S. Coast Guard Sector Guam, all of the fishermen were safely rescued and brought aboard the Marshallese-flagged bulk carrier Semirio.
