Kudos as ever to Splash247 for reporting what appears to be the first boxship fire of the decade – and we’re only five days in! According to the news site, a fire broke out in a container on the 10,000 teu Cosco Pacific, going from Malaysia’s Port Klang to India’s Jawaharlal Nehru,. The vessel subsequently rerouted to the Sri Lankan transhipment hub of Colombo. According to AIS data from vesselsvalue.com, it remains moored there.
