Bandar Abbas, JAN 26, IRNA - 6 barges caught fire in the Jask Port city in Southeastern Iran on Sunday, a provincial official said.

Head of Hormozgan Crisis Management Abdulhamid Saadini said that the barges included one cargo boat and five fishing boats, four of which were completely burnt and the fire in the other two was controlled.

"The cause of the accident is not yet known," Saadini said, adding that due to the weather and wind conditions, the fire spread to other barges and caused the spread of fire.
