Towed Canadian ship to arrive at Pearl Harbor

By Associated Press

PEARL HARBOR, Hawaii (AP) Canadian defense officials say a disabled naval refueling ship being towed by an American tug after an engine fire has been making good progress toward Pearl Harbor.

Capt. Trevor Reid said Wednesday the HMCS Protecteur and the ships escorting it are expected to arrive at the Hawaii base Thursday morning.

Reid says the weather has been fair, and the ships were roughly 50 nautical miles northeast of Hawaii at about 10 a.m.

The Canadian navy says the Protecteur was in the Pacific Ocean north of Hawaii when the fire broke out last week. Nearly 300 crew members were aboard, and the fire left 20 sailors with minor injuries.

A guided-missile destroyer on Tuesday transported 19 family members of the crew from the ship to Pearl Harbor. The relatives had been traveling with the Protecteur on its return leg to Esquimalt, British Columbia.
