A liquid petroleum gas leak has been coming out of a 20 tonne tank on the Slavyanin ferry near Bulgaria's port city of Varna, Friday.

Teams of the regional directorate of the Fire and Emergency Safety Directorate are on the site and are trying to cool the tank.

The ship crew has been evacuated. The leak is probably due to a faulty valve, BGNES informs.
