• Short Summary

    The ship 'Oregon Star' slowly burns out after a two day fire.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "Hebburn-on-Tyne. Fate! After being on fire for 2 days, the 'Oregon Star' - once pride of her line - abandoned to burn out within a stone's throw of her birthplace - 18 years ago!"

    Hebburn-on-Tyne, Tyne and Wear.

    Shot from another ship we can see the ship - 'Oregon Star'. It is listing heavily and smoke is coming from the deck.

    Closer shots of the ship as it burns.

    Shots from a small boat as it sails alongside the 'Oregon Star' - the damage from the fire is clearly visible.
