Joint teams from various fire fighting agencies, search and rescue and other groups combined forces to fight a large fire on Wednesday, August 6, 2014 that blazed for several days and destroyed six fishing ships docked at Benoa Harbor in South Bali.

Putu Sudayana, coordinator for the National Search and Rescue office in Bali, said on Wednesday: “We dispatched 25 search and rescues personnel to help put out the fire.”

According to the State News Agency Antara, staff to help put out the massive fire were also provided by the port administration of the Port of Benoa, the Navy, Police, workers from the Jasa Marga Bali Toll Road and other agencies.

Two-firefighting boat from the Bali Port Administration and the Navy were also engaged in efforts to bring the fire under control.

Authorities say the first began shortly after noon on Wednesday, August 6th and quickly spread to six fishing boats berthed a short distance from Bali’s new toll road.

The fire raged for 22 hours before finally being extinguished on Thursday morning. Smoke from the wreckage continued to be seen 3 days after the initial fire was detected.

Authorities are blaming a short circuit on the MV Samudera Maluku Jaya as the source of the fire. The ship was undergoing engine repairs at the time of the fire. Investigations by forensic teams suggest the electrical fire quickly spread to diesel fuel stored in the engine room, creating flames that were fanned by high winds and soon spread to the other five vessels.

Preliminary estimates put the damaged done by the fire at Rp. 2.5 billion (US$217,000).

In addition to the MV Samudera Maluku Jaya, five other ships were damaged by the fire: Karya Marina, AMJ Dua Baru, Tirta Usaha Mina (TUM) 106, Alex Jaya and EMJ Tiga.

All six ships are owned by PT Afki.
