She was a few hundred miles off the coast of Cyprus when there was an explosion on deck followed by a fire. Despite significant efforts, the crew could not control the fire, and further explosions took place. The vessel was abandoned and subsequently grounded off the coast of Egypt where salvors took over. The fire was eventually put out and the vessel was towed to Malta as a port refuge and subsequently to Croatia for repairs.
