Quote: "An explosion followed by a massive fire ripped through a container ship with several Indian crew on board, off the Agatti Islands, an Indian Coast Guard official said here on Wednesday. Four crewmen are reported missing. Casualties are feared in the disaster that struck on the high seas around 9.45 p.m. on Tuesday."

Quote: "MAERSK Line, the world's biggest container shipper, said on Wednesday four crew members were missing after one of its container vessels caught fire in the Arabian sea, while 23 crew members were safely evacuated. Maersk Line said the crew of the vessel Maersk Honam sent out a distress signal after unsuccessful firefighting efforts on Tuesday. The situation is 'very critical' as the fire still continues and the cause of the fire is not known yet."

Quote: "A crew member died and four others went missing after fire broke out on a new Maersk Line container vessel in the Arabian Sea, the company said."

Quote: "A merchant navy ship MV Als Cicero, which reached Maersk Honam at about 11.25 p.m., reported that the container vessel was blazing with flames from the main deck of the ship leaping up to the ship’s bridge height of about 25 metres. The crew had abandoned the ship as fire spread beyond their control."

Quote: "The casino company said its shuttle boat that caught fire off Florida's Gulf Coast never had any previous problems."

Quote: "The woman died late Sunday hours after the fire began, while 14 other people were injured, Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point spokesman Kurt Conover said Monday. The woman had gone home after escaping the boat that was engulfed in flames, but went to the hospital’s emergency room after she became ill."

Note: She'd been in the water, on the coast, breathing smoke. She could've gotten poisoned by the water or the smoke or both, and the effects just didn't kick in immediately. Hydrogen sulfide sometimes kills with a delayed reaction of minutes, hours or even a few days. Her death is very similar to the firefighters who've been dropping dead hours after fighting a fire...
