Story here from local news paper

Thankfully it seems that the fire was extinguished without anyone being injured.  Good job by the crew.

The crew of these ferries are well trained in extinguishing fires on board. In the Dutch Royal Navy the crew is trained thoroughly in dealing with accidents like fire on board. That is during the Flag Officer Sea Training.

Here is a video of an exercise in which the engineroom of the Dutch Royal Navy's Zr.Ms. Rotterdam L800 Landing Platform Dock has caught fire.

Fire in the engineroom

Excercise where Diesel 4 is on fire. Quick response is essential. One injured needs immediate care.
Rest of the crew seeks shelter, they gather at the rendezvous points.

The Dutch Navy vessel Hr.Ms. Rotterdam and the 2nd Battalion Dutch Marines practice a widescale exercise off the southern coastal area of Great Britain. Its a first in which ship and Marines are tested and judged as an integrated amphibious unit. They train for their participation in NATO Response Forces and during this exercise they are scrutinized by the Flag Officer Sea Training (FROST) in Plymouth. It forms the traditional finale of a long preparation in advance of the real deal.
