CORFU – On Monday, firefighters rescued the search inside the burning ferry, which was anchored off the Greek island of Corfu, where 10 people are missing.

The fire at the Euroferry Olympia under the Italian flag was burning for the fourth day, but rescuers gained wider access to the 183-meter (600-foot) vessel after the fire was stopped.

The body of a Greek man was found inside the ship on Sunday. A total of 281 people were rescued. Among them are two men rescued from the ferry and a third man who managed to free himself and reach the deck of the ship after being trapped for more than two days.
