 Marine accident report on the fire on board Charlotte Mærsk 

06. January 2012
The fire on board Charlotte Mærsk in the Strait of Malacca on 7 July 2010.

The Danish Maritime Accident Investigation Board has made a marine accident report on the fire on board the container ship Charlotte Mærsk.

On 7 July 2010 at 21.19 hours, about three hours after having departed from Port Klang in Malaysia, smoke was observed on deck. It was soon established that a fire was developing.

The crew of the ship launched fire-fighting measures, and after about 24 hours’ constant fire-extinction, the fire was brought under control.

The report is in English and is available here.
