JERSEY CITY, N.J. (AP) - Authorities believe a fire aboard a container ship docked at the Global terminal along the Jersey City and Bayonne waterfront was accidental.

A container of coconut charcoal caught fire and spread to a second container on the ship on Thursday afternoon.

Jersey City spokeswoman Jennifer Morrill tells the Jersey Journal (https://bit.ly/13HDceV ) the containers were removed from the flames.

Morrill says coconut charcoal is used as a flavoring.
