Kerch Strait ship fire
Two ships have caught fire while moving through the Kerch Strait separating Crimea from mainland Russia, Russian officials said. One of the vessels was apparently rocked by an explosion.

One vessel was "allegedly struck by a blast," which caused fire that then spilled over to another ship, an official with the Russian Maritime and River Transport Agency said.

Clouds of black smoke can be seen billowing over a vessel engulfed by a blaze on YouTube footage, which claims to show the scene of the incident. Another ship can be seen floating nearby, although it is unclear, if it caught on fire as well.
