Engine room fire off Chattogram
The engine of the "Bay One" caught fire in Kutubia on Feb 25, 2022, a few hours after leaving Chattogram for St Martin's in Cox's Bazar with about 1.000 passengers on board. The ship had sailed from Patenga at 10:30 p.m. on Feb 24. Smoke started coming out of the engine room at 12:20 a.m. The passengers were given life jackets.
