Twenty-three crew members, including seven Chinese nationals, were rescued on Monday after a foreign ship loaded with logs caught fire near the Yangtze River mouth in eastern China.

According to reports, the fire first broke out in the engine room of the Panama-flagged ship, "Super Sun".

Rescue workers were dispatched by the East China Sea Rescue Bureau and all crew members evacuated.

The fire was later brought under control and no damage was caused to the logs on-board.
