"Due to the nature of the chemicals on board the container holder, the water application directly on fire is not an option," said Canadian coast guards on

Twitter .

According to Radio-Canada, Zim Kingston found themselves in difficulty on Friday with the loss of 40 containers in the Canadian Ocean and Canadian Coast Guards and their American counterparts were working together to find them.
