Fire at sea

Fire at sea

A Singapore-registered vessel sank on Saturday about one nautical mile south of Pulau Mungging, off Johor.

The MT Kit 57 and another Singapore-registered vessel were moored together when a fire broke out in the engine room of the unoccupied and unmanned MT Kit 57. The 18 all-Myanmar crew of MT Kit 57, who were on board the other vessel - the MT Sakses Satria 1 - cut off the mooring ropes after the fire began spreading.

Two crew members were injured.
