MAIB Issues Report on M/V Rosebank Fire

Monday, August 26, 2002
The U.K. Marine Accident Investigation Branch (MAIB) issued a Report on its investigation into the fire that occurred on the small (1213 GT) freighter Rosebank on December 15, 2001. The fire apparently started due to an electrical short in the provision room. Difficulty in fighting the fire arose from the small (5 member) crew and the carriage of only one SCBA set. The MAIB recommended that the Maritime and Coastguard Agency consider requiring two SCBA sets on all commercial vessels.
