The Daily Mail newspaper is reporting that a giant ferry crashed into a crane in Spain last week, resulting in a massive explosion.

The report says that the fire started when the ferry crashed into the dock in the Spanish city of Barcelona, due to bad weather in the area.  The fire raged until about 11am local time, when it was finally brought under control.

The fire triggered a hazardous materials warning as some of the flammable materials was thought to be toxic.

Though the ferry was carrying people at the time of the incident, no one was reported hurt.
