Fire on Sanford vessel in Auckland
Ten fire trucks are dealing with a blaze on board an 80-metre long Sanford fishing vessel docked at Auckland's Wynyard Quarter.
The fire, which started around 10.45am, is under the deck of the tuna vessel San Nikunau.
A Fire Service spokesman says it is not known how the blaze started.
Sanford was last week found guilty on six of seven counts relating to failure to properly maintain the San Nikunau's oil record book and the obstruction of port state control inspections by the US Coast Guard.
