    Background: Visnews filmed in
    Copenhagen as the Danish Royal Greenland Trading Company's cargo vessel "Disko"
    was severely damaged by a sudden fire.

    This was the second catastrophe which hit the Greenland Trading Company an a few
    months' time. On January 30 1995 the Company's "Hans Hedtoft" was lost without a
    trace after striking an iceberg off Southern Greenland, killing more than 90
    people.

    The loss of the two ships severely affects the cargo and passenger service
    between Denmark and Greenland, which was about to be resumed after the recess
    during the winter months.

    The ships was not a total loss but will not be repaired in time for this year's
    ice-free period.
