A ferry carrying around 240 people caught fire on the Baltic Sea, injuring 22 people. An explosion on the upper deck of the Lisco Gloria set the ship ablaze. It was not immediately clear what caused the explosion according to reports. The Lithuanian-flagged ferry was travelling from the German port of Kiel to Klaipeda, Lithuania. Six other ships rushed to the scene to help evacuate passengers and crew shortly after the accident.
Three people were taken to hospitals by helicopter and the others were being taken back to Germany on another ferry.
