NTSB Fire Findings.

Postby JK » Fri Dec 14, 2018 3:31 am

What caught my eye was the plastic tuing for fuel. I am aware of a uptake fire that caused a worse fire when the plastic tubes on the emergency diesel melted and contributed to a much worse fire. It was luck and hard work of the crew and the arrival of a SAR vessel with pumps that saved the ship.
