Major fire rips through car carrier docked at Incheon -


#1

Another car carrier fire reported on Splash 24/7 today:


Marine Accident Brief - Fire on board Vehicle Carrier Honor
#2

Seems to be getting under control, next concern is stability…


#3

That’s an interesting fire fighting technique that I was never taught; drilling holes in the side of the ship to let the smoke in.
There should be sufficient drains to cope with the drencher system output so in theory stability shouldn’t be a problem; if the worst comes to the worst you can always open the ramp!


#4

My guess is everything is open, otherwise they would have used the fixed system.

In either case any water should drain down to the lower decks.
