The blaze started Wednesday afternoon local time, crisis management official Jahangir Dehghani said. Pictures posted on semi-official media Tasnim showed the ships engulfed in flames, with plumes of thick black smoke rising from debris.
The cause of the fire is still unknown. There were no reports of victims, according to Iran’s state news agency IRNA.
Bushehr is situated on the eastern coast of the Persian Gulf, 430 miles south of the capital, Tehran.
Wednesday’s fire follows another on Tuesday evening in the city of Lamerd at an aluminum factory. The fire was extinguished and no victims were reported, according to the semi-official Iran Labour News Agency.
Authorities are investigating both fires.
