Fire breaks out in Koh Chang ferry engine room

TRAT: -- A fire broke out in the engine room of a Koh Chang ferry late Wednesday night while it was docked at a pier in Trat’s Laem Ngob district. Police said no one was injured. 

 

The fire broke out at 10.30pm as workers were fixing the platform to park vehicles inside the ferry.

 

Four fire engines took about an hour to put out the blaze.

 

Workers said they heard a loud noise before they saw smoke coming from the engine room.

 

The ferry was the last to leave Koh Change on Wednesday. It arrived at the pier at Ao Thammachart at 7.30pm.

Crankcase explosion? Thankfully fire happened in the dock and no one was hurt.

Maintenance of these boats doesn't seem a high priority, surprisingly.. :saai:

 

Went on a boat trip from Ban Phe a few months ago. The boat broke down on the return leg, and we had to be towed back to port by another ship, whilst listing to Starboard at a jaunty angle. Added another dimension to a quite enjoyable trip, tbh. :smile:
