The local authorities have completed the investigation regarding the fire on the 'Jag Leela' and determined that one of the crew members that has died was the one who caused the fire as he carried out cleaning on the slop tank using a welding tool. Prior to that, witnesses said, the person was already reminded not to carry out the task as some fuel oil was still present in the vessel, which allegedly triggered an explosion and fire. The incident resulted in seven deaths and 20 injuries. The material loss and property damage was estimated to reach approximately $20,771,844.

On July 08, 2020, at 2:16 p.m., the CROSS Etel was alerted by a 406 MHZ distress beacon 170 nautical miles southwest of the tip of Penmarc'h belonging to the British yacht 'Lady Nirvana' (MMSI:232026455) whose two crew members were no longer able to ensure their navigation alone. A Falcon 50 aircraft of the French Navy, which was in operation for surveillance tasks, also picked up this distress signal. It immediately diverted to the area, in order to contact the crew and relay communications with the CROSS Etel and the Center de Consultation Médicale Maritime (CCMM). The two crew members did not require a medical evacuation but still wished to be disembarked as soon as possible. The CROSS Etel issues the emergency message "SafeSeaNet", following which the 'Johann', enroute from Ferrol to Muuga, diverted. At 4:20 p.m., te vessel took the two boaters on board, before heading for Brest where the yacht had departed on July 7. An urgent notice to mariners was issued in regard of the abandoned yacht.
