A vessel fire on the factory trawler Kodiak Enterprise in Tacoma, Washington, burned for six days last year, resulting in a total loss of $56.6 million. The fire started in the dry stores room while the ship was docked at a Trident Seafoods facility. The inadequate fire detection and notification system on board failed to alert crewmembers living on the vessel during an overhaul. Investigators recommended implementing wireless monitoring systems for emergencies and ensuring crewmembers are included in notification contacts. The cause of the fire was likely electrical but could not be definitively determined due to extensive damage.
