Four now dead from Zoha January fire in UAE

Feb 06 2020


The death toll from the Zoha VLCC fire in UAE in late January has now risen to four.

Reports say that the vessel was being prepared for scrapping at the time of the fire, and appeared to have been stationary for the past year, off the coast of Sharjah. The crew had issued a desperate plea for assistance in 2018, saying they had been stranded since 2017 due to a dispute with the owner.
