LONDON, Oct 27, 2010 (AFP) – An operation was under way Wednesday to rescue 111 people from a factory fishing vessel which caught fire southwest of the Isles of Scilly off southwest England, the coastguard said.


“There are 81 persons in life rafts with 30 people remaining on the ship fighting the fire,” a spokesman said, adding that the “Athena” was 230 miles (370 kilometres) southwest of the Isles of Scilly.
