Police technicians have determined that the fire originated in an electric car, which was charging on the car deck.
Only the skeleton is left, while a second car, which stood beside the electric car, probably not going to run again.
Police technical studies point so far that it was a technical error in the electric car that caused the fire.
Considering the possibility of charging
It has for quite some time been able to get electric car's charged on board the Oslo ferries, but if this is the caused the fire, DFDS will strongly consider whether they will still offer the service.
- If it has contributed to the fire, there will obviously be looking at it, says Gert Jakobsen, who is communications director of DFDS.
The decision would only be taken if police final survey is ready.
When the fire broke out around six o'clock this morning, they sleeping passengers was assembled in the ferry's restaurant, while smoke divers were sent down on deck.
Before they reached the the fire, the boat sprinkler had already beaten the flames and the ship could by their own power, dock in Copenhagen shortly after noon.
