A huge blast on an oil tanker in a South Korean port Saturday sparked a raging fire that spread to a nearby vessel, leaving 18 people injured, authorities said.

A ball of fire shot up high above the ship and thick black smoke billowed into the air, dramatic images showed. Firefighters struggled to contain the blaze and prevent it spreading, shooting streams of water up onto the deck from beside the vessel in the southeast port of Ulsan.

Per the Coast Guard the cause of the blast is being investigated. The captain and crew of one of the ships was Russian.

Tass (Russian news) quotes Evgeny Evdokimov: "There were no repairs or loading operations underway on the ship at the time of the explosion. It is obviously something in the cargo that caused the explosion and the fire"

I was waiting for someone to say that. It is always the other side.

I kinda doubt they would do that to their Russian buddies.

Unless it was a rocket test gone bad.

I think NK are mixed up with China not Russia
There are a few NK mini subs floating around
I don’t know but let’s just see what happens

I would imagine NK are being constantly targeted by the West and we hear nothing
Russia siding with SK, interesting
Retaliation, possibly

I think NK are under a lot of pressure, watching former allies trading with the enemy

The truth will come out
