but they are more likely to be looking for Samsung phones.


We'll they're running out of fuel, so a box of Note 7's could probably provide enough fire for cooking and heating.

Another ship adrift


Two crew members had to be rescued from a container ship off the B.C. coast after they suffered burns in an engine fire on Thursday.

The MOL Prestige is now adrift southwest of Haida Gwaii without a working engine and with nearly two dozen more people still onboard.

The Joint Rescue Coordination Centre said three people were inside the engine room when a "major" fire broke out.

Austin said the Sir Wilfrid Laurier, one of the centre's biggest relief ships, arrived on scene around midnight to support the crew while they wait for a tug.

That tug is expected to arrive Friday afternoon, but Austin said it will be slow going after that and the crew isn't expected to see land for "some time" yet.
