Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

The sprin­kler sys­tem on board the Nor­man At­lantic ferry which caught fire while trav­el­ing be­tween Greece and Italy at the end of last year was not work­ing, ac­cord­ing to a re­port in Ital­ian news­pa­per Il Fatto Quo­tid­i­ano. Cap­tain Argilio Gi­a­co­mazzi is said to have been in­formed at 4.40 a.m. on De­cem­ber 29, soon af­ter the fire broke out, that the sprin­klers were spew­ing out smoke rather than wa­ter. Eleven peo­ple died on board the ferry, which had been char­tered by ANEK Lines, while another 18 are still un­ac­counted for. Ju­di­cial author­i­ties at the Ital­ian port of Bari, where the de­stroyed ship has been docked since Fe­bru­ary 14, re­cently de­cided to ex­tend their in­ves­ti­ga­tion into the deadly fire by another six months.
