Had fire in accommodation between Gulf of Aden and Red Sea in approximately 12.23.2N, 44.04.9E on 14/11/92. Fire extinguished by crew and vessel towed to Djibouti, arriving following day. Owners do not intend to repair vessel.

The fire originated in the crew's messroom probably through negligence, however there is no reliable and concrete evidence as to how the fire started. Through proper use of fire fighting equipment onboard, the crew prevented the fire from spreading to the engine room and the rest of the vessel
