About 40 containers of cargo fell into the sea from the ship before the fire broke out. The fire is associated with two containers that contain hazardous substances.

A fire broke out on the container ship Zim Kingston, which is near the Canada-U.S. border. This was reported on Saturday, October 23, by TV channel Global News.
