ANCHORAGE- More problems for the state ferry system.
The Alaska Department of Transportation says it has canceled Sunday sailings for the ferry Aurora.
Trips had been planned from Valdez to Whittier, and then from Whittier to Valdez.
Transportation officials say the cancellations were prompted because of a mechanical issue with the ferry's firefighting system.
It will require repairs before it can resume service.
