At least seven ships were on fire in the Iranian port city of Bushehr, the semi-official Tansim news agency reported on Wednesday, without giving a reason for the incident.

The agency said there were no casualties.

A fire broke out at a shipyard Wednesday afternoon and operations are underway to bring it under control, the state-run Irna news agency cited Jahangir Dehghani, the head of the crisis management organisation for Bushehr province, as saying.

"Firefighting operations are being carried out," he said. He added that the municipal and port firefighters were being assisted by firefighters from the nearby Bushehr Nuclear Power Plant.

Irna said the shipyard builds fibreglass hulls for boats.

The incident follows a string of mysterious explosions, including at a military site near Tehran and a nuclear enrichment facility, to have rocked Iran in recent weeks, giving rise to suspicions of sabotage. Iran’s only nuclear power plant is in the Bushehr province.
