On 28 December 2014 the Italian ferry Norman Atlantic (formerly the MV Akeman Street) caught fire while en route from Patras to Ancona. Although the story is still unfolding, there seems to have been delays or problems in launching the life boats, and over 400 passengers were left aboard the crippled ship. It is also unclear what, if any, attempts were made to fight the fire on the vehicle deck (?)
