The fire was suppressed, but it left the ship only able to go at much slower speeds, according to The Guardian.
No injuries were reported, and the Australian Transport Safety Bureau is investigating.
A Maritime Union of Australia official said the fire caused “significant damage” to one of the ship’s engines and “resulted in the destruction of two smaller vessels stored on the deck,” The Guardian reported.
