Spanish Navy Frigate On Fire

Spanish Navy Frigate On Fire


Spanish Navy Frigate Santa Maria is on fire at Naval Station Rota in Cadiz, Spain.

Laid down on 22 May 1982 and launched on 11 November 1984, the Santa María was commissioned into service on 12 October 1986.

All of these Spanish frigates have the length of the later Oliver Hazard Perry frigates, have a wider beam than the US Navy design, and are therefore able to carry more top weight. Fin stabilizers are fitted.

The fire was first reported at approximately 1700 EST.
