On April 27, the 116 meter long container ship Kuala Mas caught fire near Nirwana Island, Kepulauan Seribu, Teluk Jakarta, Indonesia. The Kuala Mas has departed from Jakarta with 18 crew bound for Malahayati, Banda Aceh with 45 containers. An electrical short in the engine room ignited the blaze which quickly spread into additional compartments. The 18 crew on board weren’t able to extinguish the fire and requested assistance. Authorities dispatched several vessels to the scene and began a joint fire fighting effort through the superstructure. The fire fighters were able to extinguish the blaze, but the Kuala Mas sustained significant damage. No reports of injuries to the 18 crew on board.
