Coast Guard air and cutter forces continue to assist the 22-person crew of a 485-foot, Bahamian-flagged chemical tanker after a fire in the main engineroom disabled the vessel, leaving it without propulsion, about 700 miles west of Cape Blanco, Oregon, Aug. 15, 2014. The fire was extinguished using installed firefighting systems, however, the ship sustained damage to its generators, leaving the crew with minimal battery power.
