Nine fire units intervened at the scene of the fire, and the 2nd level of fire alarm was declared by the incident commander. Fire units cooled with water the neighbouring fermenter and extinguished the outbreaks of fire inside the decay tank, where the remains of sails and nets were still burning. The intervention took place under difficult conditions, because there was a threat of an explosion of biogas in the neighbouring fermenter.
