From the vesseltracker web site on 19 November 2010:
"It was an electric car being charged that caught fire on the car deck of the DFDS ferry Pearl of Scandinavia yesterday. It became clear shortly after the arrival at Copenhagen for discharge. The car, which was a rebuilt Nissan, ignited a couple of neighbouring cars as well as some trailers, which were partly damaged by the fire. “We are very pleased with our crew and their performance during the fire”, says Gert Jakobsen, spokesman for DFDS. “We are also happy that the cause of the fire is so clear and obvious so that we can explain to the public”, says Gert Jakobsen. The Pearl of Scandinavia will be out of service for a period of five days due to investigations on the car deck and clean up. The accommodation also needs much cleaning, as it was damaged by smoke. After the incident, charging of electric cars on board will be prohibited."
