    All crew members have been successfully evacuated onto another ship, with no casualties resulting from the fire.

    A fishing trawler under the name "Enigma Astralis" carrying 47 people caught fire in the Sea of Okhotsk, not far from Russia's Magadan, a representative for the regional rescue coordination centre reported on Tuesday.

    An investigation has been launched into the incident. The fire reportedly started in a cabin and was put out with water.

    According to MarineTraffic, the three-tonne Enigma Astralis was built in 2002 and is registered in Vladivostok in Russia's Far East.
