Athena is a fishing trawler, built in 1992. From 2005 to 2011 it belonged to Thor from Hósvík in the Faroe Islands. The ship has been very unlucky, three times it has been on fire. The last time it happended was on 9 May 2011 when the ship was lying in the harbour of Runavík in the Faroe Islands. People were evacuated from the villages around the place, especially people who lived on the other side of the fjord Skálafjørður in Strendur and Glyvrar. This photo was taken five days after the fire on 14 May 2011.
