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
